How to Digitize and Efficiently Manage Public Procurement?

In a context marked by the constant evolution of the digital era, even the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it is undeniable that new technologies occupy a central place in this almost inevitable digital transformation. This revolution affects all sectors of activity within organizations, and public procurement is no exception to this major trend.

The digitization of public procurement, rapidly expanding within government entities, is emerging as an essential response to the efficient management of public resources and the delivery of quality government services.

In this increasingly digitized world, the crucial question is: “How to digitize and efficiently manage public procurement?”

The Challenges of Public Procurement:

According to a survey conducted by the economic data platform Quandl, the public procurement market in Africa experienced a spectacular growth, registering a 7% increase in 2020 compared to the previous year. This upward trend highlights the growing importance of digitizing public procurement in the region and beyond.

The main challenges faced by public procurement include:

– The complexity of procurement processes, which can have a significant impact on the efficiency and profitability of businesses.

– The lack of traceability in procurement processes, tenders, submissions, contracts, and payments.

– High risks associated with limited public budgets, additional costs due to errors, delays, and manual processes.

Public procurement often involves lengthy and tedious processes, requiring a multitude of specific documents and certifications. The digitization of these procedures not only reduces administrative complexity but also offers a range of essential benefits to governments and suppliers.

The Digitization of Public Procurement: What Are the Benefits?

The digitization of public procurement brings about a significant transformation by taking over tasks traditionally considered time-consuming or of low added value, which were previously the responsibility of buyers. This reorientation allows public procurement actors to free themselves from these administrative responsibilities, enabling them to fully dedicate themselves to high-value strategic missions. This change paves the way for the accelerated development of their skills, thereby enhancing their ability to contribute significantly to the efficiency and quality of public procurement.

The digitization of public procurement offers numerous benefits to governments and suppliers. Among the most notable benefits are:

  1. Optimization of financial resources: By automating procurement processes and implementing electronic management systems, government entities can reduce administrative costs, eliminate tedious manual tasks, and minimize human errors. This results in better allocation of financial resources and significant savings for taxpayers.
  2. Administrative simplification: Manual and paper processes are replaced by automated systems, reducing bureaucracy and speeding up transactions.
  3. Improved data management: Digitization allows for efficient collection and storage of procurement data. This facilitates expense analysis, informed decision-making, and budget planning. Data becomes more accessible and actionable.
  4. Supplier optimization: Well-implemented digitization can help evaluate supplier performance, identify strategic partners, negotiate favorable agreements, and optimize supplier relationships, thereby reducing costs and improving the quality of products and services provided.

Public Procurement: Efficient Supplier Relationship Management

In the field of public procurement, effective supplier relationship management is of crucial importance. It forms the foundation for the success of a procurement procedure, ensuring order compliance and end-user satisfaction.

The relationship with suppliers goes beyond mere commercial transactions; it involves a strong and collaborative partnership aimed at achieving common goals. This proactive approach requires meticulous management to maximize the benefits of each step in the public procurement process.
