Procurement management

After BAM's creation at the end of 2002, a procurement programme (BAM Procurement Synergy (BAM Inkoop Synergie, BIS)) was implemented for the Dutch operating companies, in order to maximise the benefit derived from potential economies of scale for procurement. In recent years, the scope, as well as the associated costs and risk management, has increasingly focused on qualitative improvements of the various procurement processes, including supplier performance measurement, sustainable business practices/procurement, competence development and national/international developments/processes. Furthermore, more and more international co-operation has been set up.

Both the entire BAM organisation and the BAM procurement department have undergone substantial growth in recent years and have increasingly had to respond to dynamic market developments. While robust economic growth set the tone for the first half of the previous planning period, the second half was characterised by a dramatic reversal.

In the second half of 2009, the BAM Strategic Agenda 2010 - 2012 was developed. Based on this, the BAM Strategic Sourcing Agenda 2010 - 2012 has been set up. The central focus of this document is the link with, safeguarding of and integration with BAM's general company objectives, as well as the procurement-specific ones. BAM's procurement policy aims at both securing economies of scale across the entire BAM organisation and benefiting from BAM's decentralised organisational structure. The continued development and professionalization of the procurement organisation and, consequently, the further improvement in procurement performance as regards BAM's general organisational objectives are the lines along which development will take place in the near future.

This document should be treated as a guide, communication tool and guideline for BAM's procurement column during the 2010-2012 period.
