Spend Analysis and Savings Assessment

We work with our customers to understand spend strategies and identify strategy to reduce expenses.   Each vendor and area of spend can vary by industry.   By applying the correct approach, it will result in appropriate cost reductions and ensure success.


Locate Existing Agreements

Most organizations don’t know where 100% of their agreements are located.   Much less know when contracts renew, is the pricing on the agreement what is being billed and are terms being met.    During this phase we collect agreements that you can locate and also work with vendors where an agreement(s) might be missing.  We then upload these into a tracking database so all agreements across the organization are tracked.  Fractional Procurement Group uses a “Red, Yellow, Green” system – you will never miss a renewal again!


Secure Vendor Savings / Audit Pricing

Our procurement experts work with vendors to ensure correct pricing and terms are in place. We review existing / proposed agreements to ensure there are no “gotcha terms” included such as auto renewals, no caps on increases and other terms that are associated with poorly written agreements


Continue Ongoing Procurement Best Practices

We then manage contracts, suppliers performance and set up best practices.  These include a detailed RFP schedule for key categories, setting up account business reviews with key suppliers and supplier / spend optimization

We Let Our Clients Speak For Us


I was not sure how often we would use the services of Fractional Procurement Group, but boy have I been surprised! It has been a huge help to know that all our contacts are organized and that we have a system for keeping up with expiration dates. Andy and his team were recently super helpful in partnering with us to select a new technology support company. It was great to not have to source a new provider from scratch in a line of business we weren’t super familiar with, and a significant time savings. The Fractional Procurement Group facilitated the process from start to finish, and we feel confident that we are paying a competitive rate, not only in this situation but with all our contracts. We highly recommend their services!

We Let Our Clients Speak For Us


Andy Crawford and his team are phenomenal. After our initial cost savings experience with them, we decided we needed an on-going relationship to ensure we were paying the right prices all of the time and to assist us in managing our numerous vendor contracts. Using the database, we have all of our vendor contracts in one place. Critical dates are tracked so we are prepared to renew, cancel or renegotiate. In addition to managing our current contracts, the assistance with one-time purchases is so helpful. During the pandemic, they were even able to locate critically needed PPE for our organization. The amount of money that our organization has saved using the procurement services exceeds the amount paid ten-fold.

Fractional Procurement Group has helped us in many ways. One of those ways is helping us organize our contracts/agreements in one easy to navigate database. Before our contracts/agreements would expire or auto renew without our knowledge and potentially keep us paying more because of it. Now with the help from Fractional Procurement Group not only are we notified well in advance of expiration dates but they also negotiate new terms on our behalf if we need them to. They have also saved us money on negotiating new contracts by leveraging our position and using their understanding of the fine print often overlooked by us in the past. We have found great benefit in the services of Fractional Procurement Group.
