Definition

Procurement and supply management involves buying the goods and services that enable an organisation to operate in a profitable and ethical manner. Responsibilities vary from sourcing raw materials and services to managing contracts and relationships with suppliers. Procurement is often responsible for up to 70% of companies' revenue, so small reductions in costs can have a huge impact on profits.
