A key step in the acquisition process is selecting the type of acquisition method or way in which the actual purchase will be made. Each type has a specific advantage. The type of acquisition method chosen defines what the supplier is required to furnish, the price to be paid, how ordering will occur, how and when delivery is to be made, the duration of the contract with the supplier. The appropriate type of acquisition method can maximize buying power. Failure to choose the appropriate method may increase internal cost and outside spending. This seminar focuses on distinguishing one type of acquisition methods from another and emphasizes building the skills and knowledge in how to apply the most appropriate buying method to any situation.
