A member of the Procurement team and I chatted yesterday. They have this “five stage sourcing process” to justify their existence and to keep headcount. This person told me for each little purchase they have to fill out PowerPoint Templates and spend hours on market research to prove they should exist. Isn’t this silly? This person said they were told that they would be laid off if they didn’t repeat this exercise for purchases of $10 or more.
Absolutely ridiculous but keeping in line with the circus clown car management style at this sh–rix dumpster fire of a company.
