SmartProcurement has a nine-year history as an online communications and media channel, which focuses on the niche segment of Procurement and Supply Management (P&SM) for over 2 500 departments and 15 000 personnel active in the national supply chains of medium to large organisations in the private and public sectors.

Our readers generally make or influence the Procurement and Purchasing decisions within their organisations.

We cater to an audience of procurement practitioners with designations such as BEE Supplier Officers, Commodity and Contract Managers, Purchasing and Procurement Managers, P&SM Strategists and Sourcing Analysts and Specialists, active in all sectors of commerce and industry in all tiers of government, including parastatals and State owned-enterprises.

On the first Wednesday of the month our Publishing Editor, Bernie van Niekerk (B.Eng), oversees the content of relevant articles of interest to this audience which is published in the monthly SmartNewsletter to 11 500 voluntary subscribers. Our readership is updated on the latest developments and trends affecting Procurement processes, skill-sets, strategies, solutions, techniques, technologies, tools as well as the jobs and careers available, to improve the efficiencies of South Africa's national supply chains
