PURCHASING DEPARTMENT EVALUATION
An analysis of your present policies and procedures and an evaluation of your purchasing activities will be made based on the answers to a list of questions that you answer along with the forms and manual that you use.

The questions were developed by Dr. Harry E. Hough, an experienced purchasing executive and author of the best selling “Handbook of Buying and Purchasing Management.” Your purchasing operation will be analyzed and evaluated based on the information you submit. After analysis, you will receive a report with recommendations that you should implement for better purchasing practices.

The report will tell you if you are using the best methods of obtaining competitive prices. It will point out the ways you can obtain low cost products and services. It will highlight possible weaknesses in your methods of obtaining on-time delivery and tell you how other organizations obtain shipments on schedule. The report will analyze and evaluate how your purchasing operation assures quality products.

The cost for the analysis and report is $875 for members. The analysis and report is not available to nonmembers. Click here to order now.
