From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Purchasing Manager is an employee within a company, business or other organization who is responsible at some level for buying or approving the acquisition of goods and services needed by the company. The position responsibilities may be the same as that of a buyer or purchasing agent, or may include wider supervisory or managerial responsibilities. A Purchasing Manager may oversee the acquisition of materials needed for production, general supplies for offices and facilities, equipment, or construction contracts. A Purchasing Manager often supervises purchasing agents and buyers, but in small companies the Purchasing Manager may also be the purchasing agent or buyer.

A Purchasing Manager's responsibilities may include:

  • seeking reliable vendors or suppliers to provide quality goods at reasonable prices
  • negotiating prices and contracts
  • reviewing technical specifications for raw materials, components, equipment or buildings
  • determining quantity and timing of deliveries (more commonly in small companies)
