make the whole process flow together into a very professional and eye-catching proposal. Every time I have submitted a proposal, I have had someone either ask me who prepared the proposal for me or compliment me on how nicely the proposal was done."
Strategic and efficient purchasing is key to the success of this project. We propose to use the following purchasing process to acquire the goods and services we need. Use the Purchasing template to describe your purchasing process and strategy. For specific purchase you may want to use the Purchase Order template. Purchasing processes vary from organization to organization but all are variations on standard process that starts with demand for product or service. The purchasing department then generates some sort of description or requisition for that item which is disseminated to appropriate suppliers who generate bids or offers. Then the purchasing department selects and contracts with specific supplier. The overall process can be quite simple with decisions made by one or two individuals with just few phone calls. Or as in the case of governments or large organizations the process may be quite complex involving extensive written requirements and requests for proposals or for quotes RFQs followed by reviews of responses to those requests and documented selection process before purchase order is generated. General Purchasing Strategy Describe your general purchasing strategy here. For example you may always purchase based on lowest price and you may schedule purchases on regular basis such as monthly or quarterly. You may have the ability to warehouse surplus items or you may purchase only immediately before items are needed. Some purchasing systems are at least partially automated and tied to computerized inventory system that tracks incoming and outgoing merchandise. Purchasing Process Describe your process here. Be sure to describe each step in the process starting with how demand is documented and ending with how supplier is contracted. Name responsible parties or business groups required forms dates and any other important details. Different types of goods or services may require different purchasing processes. You may want to include chart or other diagram here to illustrate these processes.
