In addition to the great salary statistics that you’ve come to expect from the NLPA, this report also reveals the potentially shocking answers to questions like:

  • Is 2016 the year that purchasing and supply management salaries have “hit the wall?”
  • What characteristic makes an average difference of over $20,000 in a purchasing and supply management professional’s annual pay?
  • Are female purchasing and supply management professionals advancing to management positions as readily as men?
  • And more!

Like every year, the NLPA’s salary research breaks new ground.  In compiling this year’s salary report and for the first time, the NLPA discovered:

  • How much of a difference a procurement department’s organizational structure (i.e., centralized vs. decentralized) affects pay
  • The one industry segment where buyers of direct goods and services make much more than buyers of indirect goods and services
  • A statistic that could very well be the indicator that the gender gap in pay may soon die a well-deserved death

With constant innovation, the NLPA’s purchasing and supply management salary reports continue to stand head and shoulders above any other procurement salary research available.  “Purchasing & Supply Management Salaries in 2016” is available at no charge to all NLPA members and – if you’re not a member – a Basic Membership doesn’t cost a cent either!

Here’s how to get your copy of the “Purchasing & Supply Management Salaries in 2016” report:
