The Procurement Cycle begins with the identification of a need and ends with the award of a contract. The intention with this definition is to simplify the procurement cycle and put it into context by excluding any elements that does not fall within this specific function. In some definitions, even elements of inventory control and logistics management are considered part of the procurement cycle, but they actually take place during Contract Administration. A clearer understanding is gained once the goal of public procurement is understood. For the purposes of this booklet, the procurement cycle is understood to encompass all actions from the identification and planning of a requirement up to the award of a contract. The goal of public procurement is to award timely and cost-effective contracts to qualified contractors, suppliers and service providers for the provision of goods, work and services to support government and public services operations, in accordance with principles and procedures established in the public procurement rules. Procurement practitioners are the principal actors in the public procurement process.

Procurement is the process of finding and agreeing to terms, and acquiring goods , services , or works from an external source, often via a tendering or competitive bidding process. Procurement generally involves making buying decisions under conditions of scarcity. If sound data is available, it is good practice to make use of economic analysis methods such as cost-benefit analysis or cost-utility analysis. Procurement as an organizational process is intended to ensure that the buyer receives goods, services, or works at the best possible price when aspects such as quality, quantity, time, and location are compared. Almost all purchasing decisions include factors such as delivery and handling, marginal benefit , and price fluctuations. Organisations which have adopted a corporate social responsibility perspective are also likely to require their purchasing activity to take wider societal and ethical considerations into account. Formalized acquisition of goods and services has its roots in military logistics , where the ancient practice of foraging and looting was taken up by professional quartermasters, a term which dates from the 17th Century.

Сегодня годовщина Иуды Табу. У всех такие… - На ней майка с британским флагом и серьга в форме черепа в одном ухе. По выражению лица панка Беккер понял, что тот знает, о ком идет речь. Мелькнул лучик надежды. Но уже через минуту парень скривился в гримасе. Он с силой стукнул бутылкой по столу и вцепился в рубашку Беккера.
