Auckland Transport operates a centre-led action network (CLAN) procurement model. The key feature of this model is creating a balance between leveraging organisational scale (centralised procurement) whilst retaining flexibility in providing customised support for individual business units (decentralised procurement).
The Procurement Support Team develops and implements the procurement policy, strategy, processes and tools used by the business units. Governance and overall accountability sits with the Procurement Panel who provide direction to, and assist the Procurement Support Team in the development and maintenance of the Procurement Framework.
Developed by the Procurement Support Team, the Procurement Framework sets the boundaries within which business units must undertake their procurement activities. The key areas of the framework are Governance/Controls, Process/Tools and Performance Management.
Procurement Category Management
Auckland Transport has adopted a category-based approach to procurement which acknowledges a combination of organisation structure, the uniqueness of individual category requirements and supplier markets. This category approach will also aid in focusing Auckland Transport into an 'all of business' cross functional approach to procurement rather than a siloed approach.
