Doing business with KPMG NL

In the course of managing its business, KPMG buys a broad range of goods and services from third-party suppliers and contractors.

As a firm passionate about the quality of service we provide to our clients, we seek the same level of commitment and quality from the suppliers we wish to partner with. We recognise that the application of best procurement practice (including the selection, development and management of suppliers) can deliver significant advantage and, as such, it is our objective to purchase goods and services from suppliers who also wish to deliver best value whilst minimising commercial and operational risk.

For KPMG, best value comprises:

  • Goods and services that are fit for purpose for in house and for our clients and are delivered in a timely and professional manner.
  • Goods and services that represent the best purchase price in total cost terms over their lifetime.
  • Goods and services are compliant with applicable laws and regulations.
  • Goods and services which contribute to the ethical, social and environmental aspirations we strive for.

KPMG and Coupa

KPMG wants to work with suppliers in a simple, transparent and mutually efficient process that helps improve the purchase-to-pay process. For this reason, we work with the e-Procurement system Coupa. Coupa is considered one of the top three e-Procurement systems in the market today and allows us to work together in different ways, including via cXML. 

What does this mean for you as a supplier?
Working with KPMG means working together via the Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP), a cloud based platform for buyers and suppliers to collaborate. Via the CSP, you as a supplier, will electronically receive Purchase Orders (PO) from KPMG; acknowledge receipt of request for goods/services to be shipped; create e-invoices by ‘flipping’ the electronic PO; and be able to view the status of your orders, invoices and payments online, in real time. 

What do I have to do to get set up?
When we have agreed to work together, KPMG will ask you to share your latest company details so an account is ready to get set up by you in the Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP). After the set up the process is as follows:

  1. Creating an account with Coupa
  2. Setting up a legal entity
  3. The Purchase Order (PO) process
  4. The invoicing process (FAQ’s), please check section ‘invoicing’.

For further information please go to the support page of Coupa.
