dc.description.abstract This study investigates the managing of purchases at state-aided schools in Pretoria. The study was undertaken to obtain clarity regarding the procedures of purchasing carried out by state-aided schools when products and services are purchased. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, the investigation was undertaken on both a theoretical and an empirical level. The theoretical study was based on existing literature and creates an ordered scientifically based theory of purchase management. The theory also provides a framework according to which the empirical study can be executed. In the empirical investigation, the importance of effective purchasing techniques, the different elements of purchase management and the various steps in the procedure of purchasing were used as premise. The empirical study clearly indicates that state-aided schools do not yet manage purchasing in a specialized manner due to the task of purchasing being secondary to the professional education task of personnel. It is suggested that schools employ a full-time purchaser or that a purchaser is employed by a number of schools in a specific region. The investigation indicated that most state-aided schools rely on historical figures and price indexes regarding pre-estimation. Few schools are aware of statistical pre-estimation techniques. In general schools do not obtain information concerning suppliers, prices and availability of products and services from other similar schools. The largest percentage of state-aided schools involved in the investigation does not have an effective cost savings budget at their disposal. The utilization of an explicit purchasing policy and procedure manual to direct purchasing activities, is developed to its fullest potential by only a small percentage of schools. The majority of schools do not possess a purchasing organizational structure and most schools indicated to be in want of a central purchasing division. Schools do not exercise sufficient control over the supplier's achievement. It is clear that schools cannot pay adequate attention to negotiations with suppliers, due to the current conditions. en
