Diversifying Your Success with Heather Cox

Ask Heather: What's procurement?

A.  The simplest definition of procurement is:  

The purchasing of goods and services. 

Wikipedia defines procurement as:


the acquisition of goods, services or works from an outside external source. It is favorable that the goods, services or works are appropriate and that they are procured at the best possible cost to meet the needs of the purchaser in terms of quality and quantity, time, and location.[1] Corporations and public bodies often define processes intended to promote fair and open competition for their business while minimizing exposure to fraud and collusion.
