Strategic procurement

Actively contributing to Desjardins Group's business strategy

From procurement to payment

Procurement and payments are part of a single fluid process that allows us to maximize access to our supplier network and provide greater protection against risk.

When a purchase request is made, the procurement division sends suppliers a purchase order. Suppliers are then responsible for producing an invoice for the entire purchase order including quantity and line description. In addition, the purchase order number must be included on the invoice to facilitate and expedite payment.

The Payments Management Department is responsible for processing payments for all Desjardins components.
