What exactly is direct procurement?
Direct purchasing is the acquisition of raw materials or, for example, goods for production. These purchases are usually made in large quantities. These types of purchases are common and very necessary for important business practices. When direct purchasing ceases to function, companies are no longer able to produce their product and generate revenue.

What exactly is indirect procurement?
Indirect purchasing is the purchase of services that are necessary to keep the day-to-day running of business under control. One way to classify indirect purchasing is that it does not contribute to the bottom line. This includes things like repairing equipment, purchasing office supplies, or acquiring services. Without indirect procurement functions, companies would not be able to operate effectively.
