Transactional Procurement - Newmont, Ghana


 In 2011 the gold price took a negative downturn, which had a direct impact on the mining industry. The reduced gold price encouraged producers to focus on containing soaring operating costs targeting procurement savings in the global supply chain market. Newmont wanted to enhance and automate the supply chain performance to accommodate the falling gold price and incorporate efficiency through-out both its Ghana operations. In addition to achieving basic outsource driven economies of scale, Newmont also felt this transition would enable them to develop its supply chain in order to deliver additional value to its stakeholders
