Implications of Procurement on Businesses
In today’s global business environment, procurement continues to play a vital role in the success of an organization. Procurement is the part of supply chain management that deals with sourcing materials. It includes buying raw materials or primary components, replacement parts, auxiliary supplies, operating supplies, and subassemblies needed for production.
Procurement is a combination of supply chain management and supply chain controls. It is a broad term that encompasses the management of the entire supply chain, from materials to finished products. Procurement is a critical component of a company’s operations because it determines how easily a company can find the items it needs to continue operations and grow market share. Some of the procurement functions include:
- Review and evaluate potential suppliers and substitutes.
- Identify new raw materials by analyzing and defining them.
- A constant review of suppliers’ service levels is necessary.
- Keeping track of where the orders are at all times.
- Taking care of the legalization of merchandise as soon as possible.
- Provide support for production line changes from suppliers.
- Establish discount terms and payment conditions.
- When necessary, renegotiate the service level.
- Check that all shopping orders have been completed.
- Assist suppliers in resolving complaints.
- Helping determine the amount to buy.
- Receive samples and quotes.
- Achieving excellent relationships with colleagues within the competition.
- Make sure the raw material is of good quality.
- Provide knowledge of negotiation conditions to the enterprise.
- Arrange that orders are processed in an efficient and timely manner.
