Finance for Procurement

Increase your knowledge of this vital procurement area. By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of financial statements
  • Understand the use of financial analysis
  • Demonstrate the ability to practically apply analytical data

Why you should attend

Procurement and finance are interlinked. Procurement professionals should be able to interpret and apply the language of finance, as understanding financial data is a core part of due diligence. All financial appraisals require a balanced view and are not simply numerically based. They are a core part of an organisation’s risk management strategy.

This highly practical workshop will prepare you for the challenges faced on a day-to-day basis and focuses on minimising risk at the pre-contract stage of the procurement cycle. It will equip you to accurately assess your supplier prior to inviting bids.
