I received an email from someone in a parent company who has been asked to take over the purchasing department of one of that company’s newly acquired subsidiaries. She wanted some suggestions as to the documents she should request from the subsidiary’s existing purchasing team.
I thought that I’d share those suggestions with you, too, here on this blog. Here were my suggestions:
- Organizational chart
- Job descriptions
- Purchasing goals and objectives
- Last several months worth of weekly reports
- Personnel files
- Performance reviews
- Cost savings reporting documents
Can you think of any additional suggestions?
If so, add them to the comments!
