We get a lot of requests by email asking us to answer anywhere from one to 20 questions.

Don’t miss updates on Procurement & Supply Chain, Subscribe here!

When we receive requests to answer questions that seem to be related to academic projects for other institutions, we have a standard response.

We believe that integrity and ethics are of utmost importance in purchasing and supply management. Therefore, we decline any requests to provide answers for academic projects that are intended to be completed by the student of the other institution.

Providing such answers verbatim is not only unethical, but it also deprives the student of the rich experience of discovery through hard work and diligent research.

If we can refer you to one of our purchasing articles that may address the topic you’re researching, we’ll refer you. Otherwise, we do not do research on behalf of students of other institutions.

If you ask us for assistance and we have mischaracterized your request as related to an academic assignment, please accept my apologies and realize that we are only trying to promote honesty in academics.

Of course, we will always respond favorably to the students who have enrolled in our purchasing classes.
