CIPS members can have the confidence in our regulated qualifications, which reliably indicate the standard of knowledge, skills and
understanding that you, as a learner, are required to demonstrate.

Module purpose

On completion of this module, learners will be able to identify the key stakeholders in the application of the sourcing process and analyse the procurement cycle, evaluating the influence that procurement and supply has as a source of added value for the organisation.

Module aim(s)
In any organisation, a significant proportion of costs are accounted for by the purchases of products and/or services, hence organisations see procurement and supply as a key contributor to their value added strategies. Equally, any organisation will also be managing the supply of products and/or services to their customers, be they internal or those from other external organisations, consumers or the general public. This module is designed using the CIPS Procurement Cycle as its basis.

It will provide those who are interested in developing an informed awareness of different perspectives or approaches within the discipline, an overview of the key stages associated with procurement and supply, and will serve as an introduction for those who are expected to address complex well-defined procurement and supply problems that are non-routine in nature.

Module purpose
On completion of this module, learners will be able to devise a business case for
requirements to be externally sourced and will understand the role of market management
and competitive forces as they specify goods and services in procurement and supply.
Module aim(s)
The development of a business case and the ability to analyse markets are key if an
organisation is to successfully source activity from external suppliers. Similarly, the
clear definition of specifications for through life contracts is crucial to overall business
achievement. This module is designed for those who are expected to analyse, interpret and
evaluate information on the different types of markets utilised by procurement and supply.
It explores a variety of elements that underpin the development of business cases and
specifications and considers the options that should be explored when procurement and
supply personnel are involved in defining requirements.
