Materials management is the process in which you plan, direct and control all phases of the acquisition of goods and services; from introduction to disposal, from suppliers to end users. Proper techniques are critical to the success of your organization; whether it be in the public or private sector. You are responsible for the management of funds and for ensuring that full value and benefit are received for the money spent.
