Take a break today and listen to host Natalie Benamou and Ann Carter as they discuss “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Procurement but Were Afraid to Ask”.
Purchasing is generally responsible for spending more than 50 percent of all the revenues the firm receives as income from sales. More money is spent for purchases of materials and services than for any other expense, and the spend in services is rapidly increasing.
Procurement manages direct and indirect materials.
Key to success-demonstrate trustworthiness, bring value, and be proactive and supportive.
