Abstract

This paper discusses the case of Procurement Transformation Project of the UK’s Immigration and Nationality Directorate. The paper shows the role of knowledge management in undertaking the project which resulted in introducing a change to the process by which procurement was undertaken in this department. We demonstrate through the case study how knowledge within business processes and the supply chain for procurement can be identified, explicated, and made valuable, through devolving decisions to those at the frontline of the decision-making process. Through utilising local knowledge, and developing competences and learning, with a change in organisational structure and management style, significant savings in procurement were made.
