This is a self-paced, online mini-course designed for anyone concerned with procurement transformation, particularly achieving strategic cost savings. Every agency has the raw data available to conduct a spend analysis but not necessarily the time, resources, or expertise necessary to carry out the data manipulation required. This course will describe the purpose of a spend analysis, the process an organization would go through to conduct a spend analysis and the benefits of a spend management program that the analysis enables.
