Types of Procurement

Office supplies make your business life easier. Dryden Group helps you get the products you need with one of our procurement processes:
  • Direct procurement: These are the office supplies you need to create a final product for your customers. Our consultants measure the costs of goods for resale (GFR) to meet your needs best.
  • Indirect procurement: These are goods not for resale (GNFR). They make your business tick, like the office supplies you need to keep your buildings operating. Our consultants work with buyers and sellers to find the supplies you need.
  • Supply chain: This process involves a consultant carefully examining your entire supply chain. They look for inefficiencies when you send and receive items and help you make those areas as effective as possible.
We focus primarily on indirect spend at the Dryden Group. Often, this process is the most complex and yet completely overlooked. Our team will engage in several best practices to ensure you get everything you need at a fair cost.
