Abstract : An on-site investigation into the small purchase (under $2500.00) processing procedures of a Naval Supply Center was made to discover a way to reduce the average time a requisition takes from point of receipt by the Center until a purchase action is consumated. Factors considered included: organization structure, requisition input, requisition throughput and a detailed analysis of the purchasing process itself. A model was developed involving organizational shifts of responsibility and changes in processing techniques and emphasis. In addition, several recommendations for specific modifications were made.
