Course Description

Introduction

The Procurement function has developed from a simple administrative function to a fully fledged strategic business unit. No longer is it sufficient to simply turn requisitions into orders and then await the delivery of the goods or services. It is therefore imperative for Procurement to constantly deliver value to the organisation by delivering products and services that contributes to the well-being of the organisation.

In order to do this, Best Practices have to be implemented on four levels:

  • Strategic
  • Tactical
  • Operational
  • Contingency
