1-2 Form Purchase/SCM Team

Purchase/SCM teams play a critical role in the SCM process throughout the SCM life cycle. A purchase/SCM team is formed when the client organization determines that a need exists, and the need is communicated to the CO. The mission of the purchase/SCM team is to provide overall guidance, direction, and oversight for a given purchase or series of purchases. Assigning roles and responsibilities (and, for complex purchases, establishing team charters) and conducting project plan kickoff meetings are critical activities during the formation of a purchase/SCM team.
