Procurement is the acquisition of goods and/or services at the best possible total cost of ownership, in the right quantity and quality, at the right time (Wikipedia.org). By establishing policies on Procurement Guidelines for its facilities’ needs, an organization increases the probability of acquiring goods and/or services that meet performance and other requirements, at the best (though not always lowest) possible price.
The survey below focuses on the procurement of goods and services.
