A keen advocate of Procurement, Amanda was a founding member of the CIPS Fellowship network and has more recently instigated Fellows of the Future, which looks to champion rising stars within the profession.
As Head of Procurement at RSA UK & International, Amanda has oversight for £300m of 3rd party operational expenses for household, pet and motor insurance. Her current challenge is to make the procurement of indirect goods and services there best in class.
Over the years, there has been a shift from Contract Management to holistic 3rd Party Management, as it encompasses an ever wider range of risks, data and 3rd parties. With the potential fines that non-compliance to GDPR will bring, Procurement have a considerable challenge ahead to bring 3rd party oversight in line. However, whilst this bears heavily on us, it takes even more of a toll on our FS supply base, especially as so many of our suppliers overlap. A hub approach could avoid duplication and increasing costs but is the industry ready for that?
