KPMG helped a U.S. state create a modern, digital, central procurement function leveraging leading practices and Ivalua's e-procurement technology.
Government entities are as effective as the public trust placed in them. Over the past few years, the Governor’s office in this state has launched a number of phased initiatives to improve the efficiency of statewide operations. To upgrade its procurement processes, the state wanted to build upon earlier standardization efforts and achieve true best-practice leadership. The state asked KPMG to help make it happen.
KPMG combined its Powered Enterprise approach—built to dramatically improve the design and implementation process—with iValua e-procurement technology to produce a leading-practice digital solution that delivers consistent value for the central state procurement function, the 125 public agencies that administer day-to-day purchasing, and the statewide vendor community. Most importantly, it delivers value for state taxpayers, with the kind of accountability and transparency citizens need to maintain confidence in their public institutions.
