Procurement of Goods by Organization

Background

Procurement is defined as the acquisition through purchase or lease of real property, goods or other products (including intellectual property), works or services. Goods are objects of every kind and description including raw materials, products and equipment and objects in solid, liquid or gaseous form, and electricity, as well as services incidental to the supply of the goods if the value of those incidental services does not exceed that of the goods themselves.
