In the Bank Millennium Group the materials and office equipment procurement system is centralized. The application to submit purchase orders makes it possible to verify the justification for purchasing every order. Monitoring the performance of budgets to procure materials and reduce the number of purchase orders to the level of the current consumption leads to curtailing the consumption of resources and the waste generated.
The method of placing orders and the prerequisites to purchase new office furnishings and equipment is regulated by internal instructions. Every purchase order is checked separately with an eye to the justification for the purchase and the standards prevailing in the Bank. Effectively managing own resources through re-usage makes it possible to limit the purchases of devices such as counters, shredders, coolers, microwaves, furnishings and office accessories.
