Goods are purchased on DDP terms, i.e. a supplier is responsible for delivery to the specified place in the buyer’s country.

The project “Category Procurement Management” is implemented in order to optimize the Company’s procurement activities.

The idea of “Category procurement management” project is to combine purchased goods similar in technical and other properties into a category.

Management of a category implies the search for additional value, increasing the economic effect, estimating the total cost of ownership and reducing costs throughout the supply chain. Introduced changes will enable to reduce procurement prices, improve the quality of purchased goods, works and services, develop local producers, reduce stock balances and transport costs.

At the end of 2016, procurement category group was established, which applied this tool in “POL” pilot category as an example with the involvement of external consulting. Procurement category group developed “POL” strategy based on results of works conducted.

In addition, the development of procurement category strategies of second and third waves, approved in the List of categories of the Company is scheduled for 2017.

The list of categories is formed on the basis of an analysis of the volume of costs and importance of goods, works and services for production of final product that generates revenue.

Generally speaking, all necessary actions to optimize procurement activities, develop local producers and achieve strategic goals are taken across the Company’s group.
