Welcome! This website still serves as an important source of information and inspiration to those who consider procurement as a future careerpath and those who want to bring procurement to the next level in their organization. I am grateful that so many students and professionals still visit this website! Meanwhile I have rewritten my major textbooks together with a few esteemed and beloved colleagues and friends. Both the Dutch and English textbooks come with a great and detailed set of teacher materials. Both books are the best I ever made and are my legacy to the profession that I owe so much!
