Community economic development: lessons from two years action research. Solidarity: the egalitarian tensions of a bridge-concept. David Barkin , Blanca Lemus , Bryn Gay , Chatrini Weeratunge , May As companies look beyond short-term costs and the scope of procurement-related issues has grown, procurement professionals are paying more attention not just to what they spend on goods and services but to the broader costs of operating, maintaining and replacing the items and resources they purchase over time. There are two main reasons for this. The financial benefits of a favorable procurement deal often extend beyond the initial purchase price to other aspects of performance for example, improved working capital or reduced financing costs , so there is more than one bottom line to consider.
Second, the line between the responsibilities of procurement and those of other stakeholders can be ambiguous. The result: Procurement often shares whatever successes it achieves with other groups; in failure, however, it typically gets all the blame. The need to place procurement in a broader strategic context has become all the more pressing in the current era of increasing globalization. Global sourcing links procurement decisions to strategic decisions.

However, other important decisions such as where to buy, from whom and under what conditions are usually handled by procurement professionals. The reality is that these decisions are no longer based entirely on an understanding of direct purchase costs or on easily observable transaction costs, such as transport expenses and import duties, but on many other types of transaction costs as well, including those related to cultural, institutional and political differences.
In this article, we will explore the role of these other transaction costs in sourcing decisions and offer a new framework for evaluating costs associated with sourcing and procurement in an increasingly globalized market. Sign in , buy as a PDF or create an account.
