Procurement officers play a central role in the success of a business. In service of mines, their decisions are vital. The contractors and products hired determine timelines & even whether production goals are met. How can they make sure optimum results are obtained?
Mines are dynamic environments with loads of pressure on managers, department heads and procurement officers to keep up the pace, but there are three key bases to be covered if they are to consistently meet daily goals and keep the wheels turning smoothly.
When procurement officers and mine operators have to decide on which service providers to use, a proper investigation into costing is vital. The tender process can feel tedious, but determines success and can save you large amounts of money. Calculating the true cost per ton is part of this process.
