Job Description
Purchasing products and services is more complex than it sounds. We researched dozens of purchasing officer job descriptions to come up with the following list of the most important duties and responsibilities of purchasing officers:

Evaluate Suppliers

Purchasing officers evaluate suppliers before making purchasing decisions. This involves traveling to the supplier’s location and examining their products, as well as interviewing the decision makers on the supplier’s team to learn why their product is the best choice. Purchasing officers also compare suppliers using cost-benefit analysis.

Negotiate with Suppliers on Behalf of Employer

Purchasing officers act on behalf of their employer in the negotiation process. They must know their employer’s budget thoroughly to negotiate. They must also have a deep understanding of their employer’s needs and how the supplier in question meets those needs.

Work Out Logistical Agreements with Suppliers

It is the responsibility of purchasing officers to work out the logistical details with a supplier once a purchase has been made. This involves setting delivery amounts and a timeframe for delivery.

Maintain and Review Purchasing, Shipping, and Receiving Records

Purchasing officers have to maintain meticulous records of each purchase, as well as when each order was shipped out, and when the order was received. They must also monitor warehouse inventory to re-order items before they run out.

Attend Industry Trade Shows

Networking and staying on top of industry trends is a key part of being a good purchasing officer. Industry trade shows provide opportunities to learn about and build rapport with potential suppliers.
