CA Global Procurement manages over US $1.2 billion annually in purchased goods and services worldwide. The Global Procurement team is responsible for negotiating and contracting goods and services and delivering them in ways that guarantee quality and value to our customers throughout CA Technologies. Global Procurement views the supply line as a strategic component of the business, and is constantly seeking out ways to improve its performance and reduce costs. Such improvements come from many sources, including leveraging volumes and standardizing products to reduce costs, and partnering with suppliers to optimize performance. We also embrace a core set of values by looking for suppliers of all types for quality goods and services who share those values and can assist us in fulfilling our mission.
CA Technologies is a company that has long been at the forefront of innovation, including standardizing our procurement practices. Before payment can be approved, every CA Technologies vendor has to be approved by the CA Procurement team and have a purchase order in hand.
The advantages of these measures are obvious to us as a company. They enable us to regulate and categorize our spending so we can measure our costs for goods and services.
However, another primary goal of these measures is to ensure that suppliers to CA Technologies have a positive experience. Because not only do we appreciate the opportunity to work with your company, we want you to enjoy and benefit from working with CA Technologies.
