Procurement & Inventory Management

The strategic importance of transparent and accountable procurement in the cost-efficient delivery of quality goods, works and services, and as a vital weapon in the battle against corruption, is now recognised by governments worldwide.

Inventory management is the process of efficiently and effectively managing the flow of goods in the supply chain.
