Sourcing and Procurement Courses
Procurement is the act of acquiring, buying goods, services or works from an external source.
Procurement is the entire range and process of activities from sourcing, purchasing, negotiating and acquisition and also includes risk management, sustainability etc. Sourcing is the component of the Procurement process that deals with supplier selection and management.
