An organization exercises the best control over the cost of purchased goods and services only when the various departments involved in the process operate as an interdependent, integrated system. Uncoordinated action by one department may optimize the success of that department but cause undesirable results in another, to the detriment of the organization as a whole. Implementation of proactive procurement and the IPS differs greatly from reactive purchasing. With proactive procurement, all members of the procurement system recognize their role in the system.
Purchasing also is responsible for ensuring that the firm receives purchased material on time and of the quality specified. The yard and the construction division provide inspection and monitoring services to assist in these activities. To obtain the right supplies, services, and equipment at the right time and the right quality, purchasing must maintain viable sources of supplies, services, and equipment. The construction division frequently is organized along project lines. Each actual or potential job is assigned to a project manager (superintendent) who becomes responsible for the project's successful completion.
