Abstract(s)As firms recognize the purchasing function as an important resource for obtaining high quality levels, fast deliveries and cost savings, it reveals opportunities for the purchasing management to become a key contributor. The new product development is one example where acquisition capabilities may confirm to be particularly critical. This paper presents a construct of purchasing competence using three dimensions identified from literature: purchasing interaction, purchasing importance, and purchasing task execution. We discuss the dimensions based on a critical literature review concerning the new strategic role for purchasing. The dimensions of our purchasing competence construct were validated through a sample of 164 manufacturing Portuguese firms.
