In procurement we have a matrix-organization - we are organized by divisions and commodities.
For each commodity there is a lead buyer in charge of developing a sourcing strategy including a preferred supplier panel.
Divisions and site procurement teams are in charge of operational procurement. Division and site teams place orders and follow-up deliveries and performance of suppliers.
