  • Increase efficiency
  • Eliminate fragmented spend
  • Achieve savings

At AMP Procurement, an important part of our supply chain services is Tail Spend Management; working with customers to reduce tail spend across the business as a whole. We work closely with suppliers to bring consistent service and materials to the end consumer, whilst driving down costs.


When it comes to optimising supply chain, it often makes sense to focus on the largest contracts.

However, Tail spend – or low value spend – can hide maverick spending, waste and even fraud, which is why many organisations are now realising the benefits of tackling it.

Tail Spend is the 20% of spending that can typically go unmanaged within companies – and yet accounts for 80% of all suppliers. This can represent the majority of transactions a large business can make, which can cover a huge range of product and service categories.
