Learn more about the different teams within GPO.

Procurement Excellence

Global Procurement Excellence (GPE) is the single channel for Amazon globally that creates, delivers and maintains core procurement capabilities while executing best-in-class S2P policies, processes and digital solutions. The team drives efficiency, control and compliance, and delivers a user and supplier-centric procurement experience consistently across teams, businesses and regions.

Site Procurement

Local Procurement works collaboratively with internal stakeholders and external suppliers to provide procurement support and solutions. This team sits at the heart of site operations and works with local stakeholders to deliver procurement solutions to complex on-site projects.

Supplier Management

Supplier Management drives effective supplier management through a multi-faceted, fit-for-purpose approach based on effective assessment of supplier criticality, risk and value. The team focuses on driving enterprise-wide transparency and consistency through standards, KPIs and robust Supplier Risk Assessments. They also define strategic imperatives, creating a 3-year roadmap with evidence of leveraging higher dollar spend/critical areas, and lead scoring and metrics to drive impactful outcomes.

Category Management

The Category Team owns the strategic relationships with suppliers and internal stakeholders. The team identifies and leads strategic sourcing activities to lower overall total cost of ownership for Amazon operations, ensuring equipment and service availability to meet business owner requirements. The team develops and negotiates framework agreements to reduce risk and support local teams in project specific needs relevant to category.

Supplier Diversity and Inclusion

The SD&I team creates an inclusive procurement culture that identifies, monitors, and promotes partnership with Minority-Owned Small Businesses (MOSBs) to deliver results for Amazon, its customers and communities. The team works with partners across GPO to drive inclusion of MOSBs. They also engage in strategic outreach and collaboration with external MOSB advocacy organizations to identify new qualified and capable MOSBs.

Technology

The Global Procurement Technology (GPT) team’s purpose is to develop, integrate and maintain technology solutions that enable GPO to realize its business strategies and organizational objectives. GPT’s vision is a one-stop-shop procurement digitalization tool suite built using common, reusable components that provides Hands off The Wheel (HOTW) automation and data science (AI and ML) driven decision assistance. GPT creates value through procurement digital transformation with an emphasis on business self-service solutions and automation.

Say yes to opportunities coming your way, whether that's widening your scope or doing a project outside your comfort zone. It will pay off. If someone had told me back in 2014, when I was a temporary Purchasing Assistant stamping PO numbers on invoices, that I would some day become a Senior Shipping Supplies Manager responsible for 4 different countries, I would never have believed it.
