What is procurement management?
In our view, anything against an external invoice is purchasing.
Procurement is both the purchase of goods or services for the primary (direct) process and supporting activities (indirect purchases), but also entering into rental and lease contracts or, for example, hiring staff.
Procurement management is a planned method for entering into sales commitments and managing and optimizing these business expenses. According to the so-called six times Right principles: the acquisition of purchases that can be considered the purchase of strategic, tactical or operational nature; but must comply with Right Quality, Quantity, Time, Source/Supplier, Price/Contract, Place (as f.e. availability, transportation, operation).

Procurement processes, with its supervision and executive tasks of the procurement, will have the following phases;
• Preparations; specifications, conditions and planning (functional programme of requirements)
• Identifying & selecting suppliers
• Applications, request proposal
• Negotiating & establishing contract
• Purchase decision
• Ordering
• Quality control & expediting
• Delivery & Measurement
• Acceptance & analysis
Depending on the role and powers of procurement and the organizational structure of the company, the duty of procurement in these process phases may vary; directing or executing, but also roles as coaching as a knowledge owner, supporting in collaboration with others employees or delegating as others have to carry out the work.
However, through the cooperation of purchasing activities and proper management, operational management remains flexible and decisive; and saves money, time, and resources. Procurement management ensures appropriate procurement of all items and services so that production, projects and support processes can run efficiently and successfully. In short, good procurement management is imperative to avoid costly problems, mistakes and delays.
