Course Overview

The guiding principles of public procurement are based on the concept of stewardship. The term ‘stewardship’ generally refers to the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care. Moreover managing customer and vendor relationships is a critical aspect of managing supply chains. In many cases, the collaborative relationship concept has been considered the essence of supply chain management. However, a closer examination of supply chain relationships, particularly those involving product flows, reveals that the heart of these relationships is inventory movement and storage. Much of the activity involved in managing relationships is based on the purchase, transfer, or management of inventory. As such, inventory plays a critical role in supply chains because it is a salient focus of supply chains.
This diploma manual will equip learners with necessary concepts I mastering the skills needed to effectively understand and be able to run the process of procurement and supply chain management in their respective organizations.
