Executive Summary

Lancashire County Council wanted to maximize purchasing efficiency, gain a real-time view of spend commitment, and reduce off-contract buying and automate procurement to reduce the need for buyer intervention; creating a touch-less request through to payment process. The challenge was to reduce cost of managing suppliers and accelerate invoice payments to help businesses in economic downturn. Lancashire County Council implemented an Oracle-based, end-to-end automated procurement system to replace paper-based and standalone computerized processes used by individual council directorates and used Oracle Purchasing to create a single database of approved suppliers, establish standard corporate procurement processes, and negotiate volume discounts from preferred vendors.
