The vision of Global Financial & Accounting Services (GFAS) is to provide innovative and scalable global business solutions in accounting, tax, payroll, treasury, procurement and financial operations while safeguarding the reputation of the foundation and our related entities, with the highest standards of integrity and operational excellence.
GFAS is a division within the Finance organization at the foundation and an important part of the operations function. Operations support and enable the five program teams to make investments and to run effectively and efficiently. As a function, Finance employs approximately 100 FTEs (Full-Time Employees). The GFAS division is significant (40+ FTE’s), and responsible for financial reporting processes, technical and advisory services, internal controls, vendor due diligence and the accounting functions at the foundation.
As a new integral function of GFAS, Strategic Sourcing & Procurement (SS&P) is building up a team that partners with business to procure competitive vendors, drive negotiations and align with internal contracting requirements. SS&P is both a practice and function.
As a practice, SS&P is the evaluation and selection of vendors based on qualitative and measurable success metrics, rather than the simple cost of the product or service. SS&P connects spend analysis, data-driven vendor selection with diversity in mind, and ongoing engagement with vendors to increase purchasing power to deliver value and mitigate risk.
As a function, SS&P is a new business-enabling team who partners with Contract Services, Finance, Information Security, HR, Legal, Accounting and others to ensure our vendor procurement process is transparent, balances risk, and gives time back to business partners to focus on their impactful work in the foundation.
Reporting to the Deputy Director of SS&P, the Procurement Operations CoE Lead (Center of Excellence) will join a team whose primary responsibilities include strategic sourcing, vendor management and managing all procurement processes across all Operational Divisions. This leader will operationalize the new Coupa procurement platform, lead the rollout of efficient procurement processes, compliance, metrics, as well as vendor diversity, vendor management and onboarding.
