Procure to Pay

Who We Are

The Procure to Pay (P2P) Department enhances total value without compromising water quality, safety, or brand by leveraging the Company’s purchasing power for the procurement of goods and services.  The P2P Department works with the internal departments to source goods and services, setup suppliers, issue Purchase Orders (PO’s) and provide payment to vendors.

 

Competitive Bid

Competitive procurement is the preferred sourcing method for goods and services over specific dollar amounts as identified by our audit controls.  Internal departments are responsible for conducting competitive sourcing in coordination with the P2P Department.  Highly technical or specialized professional services are engaged in a prudent manner and may be sourced with Vice President approval.

 

Contracts/Agreements

Throughout the procurement contract lifecycle, the P2P Department will work with internal departments to negotiate and execute supply, services and construction agreements.
