Successful procurements of goods and services relies upon having a clear strategy in terms of, for example, identifying types of suppliers, type and form of contract, scope splits, objectives. Once the strategy is clear, its implementation needs to be planned. Planning covers the tactical steps to ensure that the objectives of procurement strategy will to be achieved.

The execution plan defines the tasks to be performed, fixes the deadline or timeframe, and identifies the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders responsible for the procurement.

The process of implementing a strategic procurement plan involves the following activities:

  1. Creating and reviewing the plan
  2. Creating a vision for the implementation
  3. Selecting the team
  4. Ensuring all aspects are understood by the stakeholders
  5. Scheduling of regular meetings
  6. Regular consultation with all stakeholders including technical, production, financial, legal, quality, health safety & environment
  7. Defining a contingency plan if things do not go as originally planned
