Shopping, Other Management

Shopping in terms of Contract Management 

Shopping is a term often used in our daily life. In terms of contract management, this term is adapted for procurement of certain special requirements. As a first step, various contractors or suppliers are enquired and a procurement date is obtained from them. This procurement date is based on the requirements of your project. The date collected from various suppliers by enquiring is compared, and then based on the output, procurement is made. Since procurement is critical, we follow a definite procedure for procurement.  Shopping is a popular method of procurement in which  the quotations are invited from pre-selected contractors or suppliers for procurement of small quantity of service, or goods. Shopping can either be national or international. In the case of national shopping, the currency of quotation and payment is in national currency. In international shopping, currency of quotation and payment can either be national or international.
