Procurement and supply chain management systems are important functions in humanitarian operations.

Procurement and Supply Chain Management systems ensure timely availability of relief supplies, services, finance and information flow thus ensuring healthy chain of relationships within and among partner humanitarian organizations. Humanitarian and development operations and programming cannot succeed without effective and efficient procurement of supplies and their distribution systems.
