Procurement specifications

Procurement specifications are the crucial stage of any purchase as they stipulate the client’s ultimate requirements. It is, likely, the most complicated element of a long-distance purchase.

Procurement information packages lacking specifications or concrete technical requirements (or burdened with unnecessary, confusing stipulations) lead to operational challenges down the road. Failing to customize your requirements for a particular country or industry may also result in misunderstandings or contract evasions.

Professional approach to composing Request for Proposals (RFP) or Request for Quotation (RFQ), as well as the actual purchase specifications is fundamental, and its importance cannot be overestimated.

There are two principal ways to formulate such requirements:

  1. Simple written specifications that list all of the client’s requests for each concrete product and its packaging.
  2. Pre-production sample/model is self-explanatory and presents all qualities, attributes and features that cannot be adequately described in a simple written form, such as look, feel or quality finish.
