Default Centralising procurement - What staffing levels?

I have been given the task of centralising procurement for my company (great fun indeed!).

The problem is staffing levels??

The management information I have to work with is terrible, there is alot of duplicate processes and massive areas of spend to work on. We spend approx 30million pounds on non-pay expenditure and there is plenty to do.

Approx 10million is spent on travel and the setup I have planned will have 3 dedicated staff for travel.

The other 20million I don't know, I don't want it to fall on its arse but at the same time asking for 20 staff ain't gonna happen!

Based on a spend of 30million with minimal management information. How would you structure you department at the planning stage and looking for funding?
