Negotiation skills are a core skill which procurement professionals should be well equipped with. Here are some of the areas where negotiation skills in procurement and supply can be of importance

Negotiation can be required as a result of procurement role in challenging user identified requirement. This is important because through negotiations procurement professionals can ensure that the requirements are commercially sound and add value.

Negotiation is necessary in situations where the terms of sale include many and varied clauses or if the buyer suspects that the quoted price is unreasonably high

Negotiation may also be used in open or less prescriptive specification to agree on better benefits, total package and value for money

Negotiations can also be applicable as a means of conflict resolution between the buyer and the supplier

Post tendering negotiation may also be used if there is a possibility of improvement in supplier offer

It’s therefore important for procurement professionals to be on top of their negotiation’s skill.
