Abstract

The aim of this article is to explore how capabilities are shared among humanitarian organisations through the consolidation of materials during global procurement activities. Global procurement for goods is simplified by the relationships on the ground with other humanitarian partners which allows for a better understanding of the needs and a better fit with the programme objectives. This activity leads the organisation studied to consolidate the procurement needs of many organisations worldwide ensuring reduced costs and goods of high quality for its partners with the help of the technical and market knowledge available for procurement activities.
