Procurement: A Business Process that Requires Good Governance
January 22, 2012
Of all occupations, both in public and private sector, buyers are associated with receiving bribes.
At one of my former employment, the occupation was not highly regarded, all buyers could afford cellphones when they were introduced in Zimbabwe and had the luxury to operate contract lines that were synonymous with executives that time.
In the corridors, other staff members were suspicious and likened buyers to thieves. At one time, the procurement manager was put to task in a in a management meeting to explain the flamboyance of the buyers.
