Procurement is the same, and most current procurement procedures have a suite of indicators for giving feedback on the performance. Effective and efficient procurement relies upon efficiently examining spend information and the KPIs. The three major classifications of KPIs (key performance indicators) for procurement are quality, conveyance and cost reserve funds.

The 5 procurement metrics that will drive improvement in a business are as follows:

  • Spend Management: This is normally communicated as a percentage of effective and actively managed spending. The more the organization’s spending, the more is the influence on procurement and also on savings.
  • Time of Procurement Cycle: This is a pointer of procurement’s productivity, both inside the team and with the suppliers. Key Performance Indicator’s (KPI) look at the average time of the procurement process from a sourcing demand being submitted to a buy request being set or agreement being agreed upon.
  • Quality: This metric takes a look at the quality and nature of products that are to be procured by tracking metrics like defect rates, dismissals of products, and supply disturbances because of low quality. Accuracy is another important metric both by the procurement team and suppliers. 
  • Delivery: This indicator measures whether the procurement process done is right and the procured materials are the items that an organization needs and when they are in need.  Also, the organization can follow how frequently the deliveries are early or late and by how many days they are pending.
  • Agreement Compliance: This metric sees how well the suppliers are meeting contract terms and conditions. It is often expressed as the ratio of contracts that are not meeting the specifications with the complete number of contracts. 
  • ROI from Procurement: ROI metric is a significant level of measurement that helps in estimating the procurement performance by comparing cost reserve funds to the procurement’s team budget.
