In 2006 Communisis gained the coveted Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) certification for the standard of excellence in our purchasing policies and procedures.

This is the benchmark for best practice against which other companies can compare themselves.

How does CIPS know what constitutes best practice?

CIPS is in a unique position to work independently alongside the world’s leading companies and to appreciate how they apply their purchasing and supply management expertise. This intimate knowledge enables CIPS to recognise best practice.

What does CIPS Certification mean to Communisis Sourcing?

It means a great deal. It is an independent accreditation acknowledging Communisis have adopted best practice and this in turn means we are managing key areas of our business such as Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Professional Practices. It also proves that Communisis is progressive and we embrace continual improvement.

With quality purchasing and supply management policies, procedures and processes in place, all underpinned by CIPS Certification, our stakeholders, employees and business partners can have confidence in the way Communisis operate.
