Asa contract analyst in procurement with Florida Department ofTransportation, my primary objectives were to leverage thedepartment’s buying power, provide an efficient and bettermanagement of suppliers and minimize operation costs in theprocurement process. To realize these objectives, there was the needto collect critical data whose analysis could provide trustworthyinformation to support decision making. Under my leadership, weinitiated a spend analysis approach to collect all expenditure datawithin the organization from different sources. The e-procurementsystem and purchase cards provided data for analysis. The spendanalysis approach allowed us to analyze the past, current andforecasted expenditures and provided visibility of data based onservices, products, suppliers and individual departments. As aresult, the organization was able to establish an automated andrepeated process of data analysis and easy retrieval of informationthat could support decision making in the procurement process. Thespend analysis automated system also enhanced integration with othersystems thus improved data collection and intelligence sharing. Also,my responsibilities at the Town of Southwest Ranches as an internadministrator involved making simple and inexpensive financialdecisions. In this case, I used cost-benefit analysis approach toevaluate strengths and weaknesses of alternative decisions. As aresult, the organization was able to operate at minimum costs andrealized maximum benefits of decisions made.
