CoreLogic - Procurement Outsourcing

Achieving cost savings and process efficiencies through Procurement Outsourcing



CoreLogic is a leading U.S.-based provider of consumer, financial and property information, analytics and services to business and government. CoreLogic provides services in real estate, mortgage application, fraud, loan valuation, flood determinations, and geospatial analytics and services.

In a dynamic business environment with challenged growth and continuing pressure on margins, CoreLogic sought to achieve near term and sustainable cost savings to free up resources which could be invested back in the business, evolve strategic sourcing competencies, improve its procurement organization, and drive sustainable process efficiencies and cost improvements. Deloitte was engaged to perform a high level spend analysis and identify improvement opportunities, assess the procurement function, arrange an outsourcing agreement with a strategic service provider, and establish a governance model.

The Challenge

Faced with a dynamic business environment, CoreLogic sought to improve its SG&A costs. The company required professional advice in identifying cost saving opportunities across its procurement function, an assessment of the service provider marketplace to understand capabilities in strategic sourcing and procurement outsourcing, and selecting a suitable partner for a transformation of the procurement function to the best in class.

The strategic objectives of the engagement included:

  • Understanding the maturity of the procurement function
  • Understanding an effective strategy to transform the procurement function to the best in class strategic sourcing and procurement -- internal improvement vs. outsourcing
  • Creating a plan to execute the strategy

Deloitte was involved in the following aspects of the project:

  • Conducting a strategic assessment of the procurement function
  • Developing a business case for procurement outsourcing
  • Developing and executing a Request for Information (RFI) and subsequently a Request for Proposal (RFP)
  • Conducting service provider evaluations
  • Assisting with negotiations and contracting

How We Helped

  • Project leadership and subject matter specialization in global Procurement Outsourcing
  • Extensive experience working with leading outsourcing service providers
  • Pricing and functional benchmarks, knowledge of the service provider landscape and capabilities, and tools and processes to enable and accelerate the outsourcing initiative


Deloitte utilized its experience with the sourcing and procurement process, outsourcing lifecycle and knowledge of CoreLogic's organization to identify the specific strategy to meet its objectives.
