According to Morgan, bureaucracies may achieve efficiency by dividing tasks and developing “detailed rules and regulations” (Morgan, 17) for all employees. The procurement process begins with the desire to purchase a good or service for example, a pencil. In order to purchase this supply at the LACCD one employee must create a purchase order (PO) in SAP by logging into their account that is linked to a budget. The PO must have the vendors contact information, details about the product including price, quantity, model number, and taxes. It must also be approved from the department chair or dean, the departments Vice President, and college’s Vice President of Administrative Services. If the purchase price of the good is over $5,000 the college performs an additional step and gets the approval of the board of
Introduction Organisations around the world are increasingly operating in very dynamic business environments.

Procurement is one of supply management’s most challenging responsibilities (Burt, 2010). Therefore relationship management is the key to procurement success (Zhang, 2011). The purchasing of services has the potential to turn into relationships with suppliers that tend to focus on trust instead of the transaction (Burt, 2010). With that in mind, procurement should focus on long-term supply sustainability rather than short-term cost-saving (Zhang, 2011). To nurture an organization’s supply base into a fully committed and fully supported external entity requires time, effort and a highly collaborated working relationship (Zhang, 2011). Effective communication within the relationship is indispensable for any procurement outsourcing strategy to prosper (Simchi, Kaminski, Simchi, 2008). Failing to establish and manage good relationships could cause irreversible and catastrophic damage to a procurement outsourcing strategy. One of the most common outsourcing relationship problems is that organizations tend to sit at opposite sides of the work-group table instead of next to each other (Vitasek, 2010). The application is that the two organizations are working against one another instead of work with each other to solve an

These contracts are negotiated usually where reasonably definite specifications are available, and costs can be estimated with reasonable accuracy. A
“Establishing a procurement strategy – New concert hall” Assignment Introduction This assignment has been designed to enable you to prepare a report style paper on two currently used UK construction procurement methods that would be applicable to the example scenario below. Upon presenting the two most suitable options you should then suggest which one would be most suitable for the scenario given. Your assignment is outlined below. Construction projects, establishing a procurement strategy Many clients to the construction industry will often face a steep learning curve on their construction project or programme.

III. External Factors The given scenario indicates a major consideration about the funding issues; refer to item Cost, as well as obtaining the suitable expertise outside the client resources that might affect the chosen route too. 2.
