What is procurement planning in detail?

In addition to budgeting, forecasting key indicators such as procurement volumes (spending) and savings are included in procurement planning. When planning for spending, quantity and pricing planning can be done separately.

Further plans can be made at the level of the individual initiatives (procurement initiatives). The strategic forecasting of procurement initiatives and their results (e.g. negotiations with a supplier) are particularly important in order to be able to plan and gauge savings.
