Course description

Advanced Certificate in Strategic Procurement (ACSP)

Advanced Certificate in Strategic Procurement (ACSP) - certified by the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) 

Effective Procurement is, and always has been, fundamental to the success of an organisation. On average, over fifty percent of an organisation’s total revenue is passed down the Supply Chain. In many sectors however, this can be significantly more for example in the Public Sector, this can exceed eighty percent.

It is imperative that this expenditure is managed and controlled effectively. Poor procurement leads to increased cost, poor quality, delays, loss of control and lack of cost visibility. Proactive, professional Procurement will become a value added function within the organisation.

Over time, organisations have realised the value that can be delivered through effective Procurement. At the same time, the value of appropriately qualified Procurement Professionals has also increased. Procurement is now seen as a ‘job’ rather than a ‘role’.

The shift from transactional, operational buying to Strategic Procurement has been quicker in some Industries than others. Organisations that have not yet made the change are being left behind. Commodity, or category, based Procurement provides the correct structure to help deliver a truly World Class Procurement function.

ACSP™ provides the understanding, framework, tools, and principles that allow organisations to build, embed and develop real Strategic Procurement. The course is certified , through independent assessment and accreditation, by the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) PAS Standard. After the successful taking of an examination, you will gain the certificate and you can use the ACSP™ trademark on your business card and on your resume - this shows that you have completed an International qualification and that you have the skills and experience to manage procurement effectively on a national, regional and global level.
