STAR Procurement (a shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils), Glossary of Terms, published in May 2019, suggests category management is: ‘A strategic approach to procurement; which classifies procurement to help category managers to focus on specific areas of spend. This allows category managers to focus their time and prepare in depth market analysis to influence procurement decisions…’
Commercial Continuous Improvement Assessment Framework, published by HM Government in May 2021, states: ‘Category management is the strategic approach for buying specific categories of goods and services that aligns organisational spend and requirements with supply market capability and capacity. The majority of organisational external spend can be grouped into common categories.’
