Procurement Outsourcing

Outsource your IPOs to Dragon Sourcing to benefit from immediate value, global capability and scale.


Reduce overheads & operational risk
High operating costs, staff attrition and corruption are the main challenges to the effectiveness of small International Procurement Offices (IPOs) below 10 staff. Through outsourcing your IPO to Dragon Sourcing you can immediately reduce your overheads, reduce staffing risk, and the risk of corruption, whilst gaining access to the Dragon Sourcing’s scale.

Increase productivity and capabilities
For any IPO, capability to execute process productively is key to effectively sourcing goods and services. Within a small IPO developing and retaining the scope of category expertise and consistently following rigorous processes is a challenge. Procurement Outsourcing with Dragon Sourcing gives you access to a wider category expertise and strong process capabilities.

Flexible global network of operations
A typical risk for internal IPOs is limiting the sourcing to the country where the IPO is based instead of conducting true global sourcing. As countries’ relative competitive advantages shift rapidly this leads directly to reduced competitive advantage. Through Procurement Outsourcing you gain access to a flexible global network of operations that is experienced in conducting regional and global sourcing operations.

Through Procurement Outsourcing we can assist you in:

  • Rapidly scaling global sourcing capability
  • Rescuing failing procurement operations
  • Managing procurement operations for localisation requirements
