Purchasing Officer Lagos Mainland

Purchasing Officers buy products for organizations to use or resell. They evaluate suppliers,negotiate contracts,and review product quality.

Purchasing Officers buy farm products, durable and non durable goods,and services for organizations and institutions.They try to get the best deal for their organization—the highest quality goods and services at the lowest cost.They do this by studying sales records and inventory levels of current stock,identifying foreign and domestic suppliers, and keeping up to date with changes affecting both the supply of,and demand for, products and materials.

Purchasing Officers consider price, quality, availability, reliability, and technical support when choosing suppliers and merchandise.To be effective,purchasing agents and buyers must have a working technical knowledge of the goods or services to be bought.

Evaluating suppliers is one of the most critical functions of a purchasing officer.Many organizations now run on a lean manufacturing schedule and use just-in-time inventories,so any delays in the supply chain can shut down production and potentially cause the organization to lose customers.

Purchasing Officers use many resources to find out all they can about potential suppliers.They attend meetings, trade shows and conferences to learn about new industry trends and make contacts with suppliers.

They often interview prospective suppliers and visit their plants and distribution centers to assess their capabilities.For example,they may discuss the design of products with design engineers,quality concerns with production supervisors, or shipping issues with managers in the receiving department.

Purchasing Officers must make certain that the supplier can deliver the desired goods or services on time,in the correct quantities,and without sacrificing quality.Once they have gathered information on suppliers, they sign contracts with suppliers who meet the organization's needs, and they place orders.

Buyers who purchase items to resell to customers largely determine which products their organization will sell.They need to be able to predict what will appeal to their customers. If they are wrong,they could jeopardize the profits and reputation of their organization.
