Default Supply Chain/Procurement Questions

I am business student at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and I am in a Supply Chain management course which has given my group the assignment of studying and analyzing how small and mid size companies organize their supply chains. There seems to be very little prior research done on this subject, so we are looking for information in any way we can.

We would really appreciate it if any of you are willing to share with us some information about your procurement practices. We would especially like to know the following:

1) What type of industry are you in, and how many employees does the company have?

2) Do you have an employee or multiple employees who almost solely do purchasing? If so, who do they report to?


Are purchasing responsibilities spread across the company? If so, what other types of duties to the people who do the purchasing have?

3) Why did your company decide to deal with purchasing the way does? Is it working well for you? Are there changes you are considering making?

My team and I would like to thank you for your consideration in this matter. If you have any questions, I will be checking this thread regularly, or you can email me.

Thank you again
