Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see a day in the life of a Procurement Specialist.
Great! Now imagine you are a procurement specialist and it’s your job to buy 2000 of this every day. The head of your department asks you to prepare a procurement report naming your recommendations of top 3 businesses to purchase from (at least one of these must be a small business). Your report must…
– Prove this business is a leading provider of this item (ex: clothes, video games, etc.)
– Prove this business can supply 2000 of this item daily
– Explain the procurement process. What steps are needed for you as the procurement specialist to procure 2000 items daily from this business?
Research online to find the needed information. Then bring your report to life using a free graphic design tool like Canva to make your Procurement Report look awesome!
