Almost all of South African solar firms could now be considering expansion into other markets on the continent, said Pierre Doutreloux, managing director of Exosun Pty, tracker manufacturer Exosun’s South African subsidiary.
A sluggish home market and the prospect of rapid growth in other African nations is leading South Africa-based solar players to expand into neighboring countries.  “All big EPCs [engineering, procurement and construction contractors] are now in South Africa to try to win projects [abroad],” Doutreloux said. “South African companies now try to do the same, with or without success.”

If you stick with the traditional business-to-business (B2B) mentality for indirect spend procurement you are likely to still be going through the purchasing process while your competitors are shipping their products.
Managing indirect spend: you’ve got it all sewn up, right? Assess your requirements, issue a request for proposals, select a long list, whittle that down to a shortlist, get references, ask for a proof of concept, select…. Wait a second. Is that really how you are buying tail spend items? Granted, in these times of …

It turns out that fighting fraud can be a relatively simple affair if you move in the right direction.
If you’re concerned with managing indirect spend then you need to be concerned about procurement fraud. It’s a sad fact of modern business life that fraud cuddles up to procurement like a kid to a puppy. Figures from Deloitte, the accounting firm, indicate that procurement fraud levels practically haven’t decreased in recent years, with roughly …

As direct spend reaches the limits of optimization, thanks to increasing digitalization and automation, more and more organizations are looking at how to drive procurement efficiency in other parts of the business.
Is indirect spend management on the verge of a significant step change? Indirect spend has always been very much the poor relation to direct (or ‘strategic’) spend, in many cases almost an afterthought. And that was fine. Or it was understandable, at least. If 80% of your spend is going on strategic purchases like raw …
