Adriana Khandlová

Adriana has worked in procurement and awarding public tenders for almost two decades, so she knows procurement inside-out. Currently she heads the procurement team at SPP (energy supplier) and is responsible for securing the commodities needed by the company. At the same time, she is an expert procurement guarantor for her colleagues regardless of whether they are in the position of customer or supplier. In order to achieve the best possible results in procurement, she has participated in the setting-up and implementation of several support projects. She has introduced a system for the evaluation of suppliers, the use of digital catalogues, the use of qualifying systems and other digital solutions and approaches in the procurement process. She likes the challenge of implementing new, or less well-used, procurement practices into public institutions. She won’t accept "It can’t be done" and her aim is to look for and find solutions.
