What is Indirect Procurement?

Indirect procurement, also known as indirect spend, involves the purchase of the goods and services, supplies and materials — including computers, hardware, software, maintenance, utilities and travel — that are required for the day-to-day running of a business. Although it is essential for routine operations, this spend category is often overlooked as procurement teams tend to focus on direct procurement.
