The work of procurement and supply professionals includes the process of procurement, or buying goods and services; however, these roles can be much broader than just procurement. These roles can extend to a huge range of related commercial activity such as influencing policy, financial analysis, engaging in contract law, and developing strategy to deliver services.
The variety of goods and services that procurement professionals are responsible for is vast. Goods could range from buying a plane to negotiating new stationery supply. Securing services could include finding new and innovative IT systems, outsourcing translation services or closing a deal on a construction project for a new building, encompassing the entire procurement cycle.
