Reducing public spending remains a high priority for many governments, and forecasts suggest that spending will continue to fall during the next few years. Auditor-controller agencies and departments need to improve product vendor cost and compliance management, implementing policies to favor more economical vendor selections.
The Accenture Spend Optimizer application provides analytic insights into the procurement activities of typical large-scale agencies to help identify fraudulent, abusive or collusive activities that can drive up costs. The application is designed to allow auditor-controller agencies and public departments to create and deploy policy rules related to spending allocation. Users then combine these policies for different groups, reviewing the spend distribution and compliance of the selected list of product vendors.
