This is the course book for the 'Procurement and supply processes' unit which forms part of the
CIPS 'Certificate in procurement and supply operations' qualification.
With the introduction of the new qualifications, the distinction between the UK and international qualifications has been removed, and the current international certificate will be withdrawn, with the current UK Level 2 introductory certificate withdrawn at the same time. The certificate in procurement and supply operations replaces both of these qualifications.
The recommended reading for this unit is 'Purchasing and Supply Chain Management 8/e' by Lysons and Farrington, ISBN 978-0273723684, which can be purchased here.
