End of Life hardware costs

Recently, when reviewing the costs built up in a Service & Support contract noticed we had accounted for an "excessive" amount of hardware upgrades. I thought we had overestimated these costs, but we are talking about a 5 year contract and I can see now the rapid evolution of the technology and regulatory pressures to change existing hardware that reached the End of Life. I can see now we had properly estimated those costs.

The end of Procurement

Hello Tim I found your article very interesting. I agree that procurement struggled for years to prove its real value, and it is still struggling. Firstly. Until the procurement staff performance is measured on monetary savings mainly and their work considered purely administration, it will be difficult to make any changes. The demand need to come from senior commercial leaders. The targets set for procurement staff are quick turnaround time and monetary savings. There is very little time to build relationship! Question. If the new technologies will make procurement quicker, with less or without people, would the relationship element be pushed back even more? No need to lift the phone anymore or meet in person! While I can hear that you would have more time to interact with suppliers. That is not, what I can see, but increasing volume of work, as you can do procurement quicker. In my view, the senior commercial leaders need to understand the benefit of relationships in business, set the direction and support the staff to achieve it. Support means not only sending a person on course but show it how it is done. Really seen nowadays! Secondly. I am always interested in self-development. What do you think what skills should we should concentrate on?

TRG UK LAW UPDATE - June 2020

Welcome to the latest issue of the TRG Update. The circumstances of recent weeks have certainly put things in perspective. One can only hope that some positives come out of this and that the impact on the health and wellbeing of family and friends is minimized. Hopefully, things get back to some semblance of 'normality' as soon as possible without putting lives in danger. It would be good if the inevitable disputes which will arise out of the emergency can be resolved constructively with limited need to resort to formal litigation as we are sure that funds are probably much better directed elsewhere rather than paying expensive litigation lawyers!
