Procurement at Accenture

A reimagined function driving value by supporting Accenture business growth, delivering on sustainability and managing third-party relationship risk

Delivering business value

Accenture’s Procurement function—a part of our Geographic Services organization—performs traditional procuring activities as well as contractor sourcing and enablement, ventures and acquisitions, payables, supplier inclusion and sustainability—and much more.

Our function is dynamic. We are transforming to deliver value above and beyond what is expected of traditional procurement. We’ve shifted our focus past the traditional role of managing transactional compliance to also becoming a partner to our business functions, enabling Accenture’s growth.

It’s the reason we changed our name to Procurement Plus several years ago. The “Plus” represents the extra things we do beyond procuring services.
