Procurement (also known as purchasing and supply) may appear to be a ‘hidden’ function in many organisations. In fact, procurement is a highly strategic role, whether the organisation is manufacturing or service-orientated, in the public or private sector, for profit or not. Procurement is complex. It covers the full supply chain management from contracts (negotiating), procurement (purchasing) and logistics (storage/distribution).

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods and services. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. Interconnected or interlinked networks, channels and node businesses are involved in the provision of products and services required by end customers in a supply chain. Supply chain management has been defined as the “design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally.”

All businesses need inputs in order to be able to operate. These might be physical inputs, such as raw materials, to complete your construction project.
