“Procuring” for this discussion means getting what is needed. For machinery such as centrifugal pumps, this usually involves four steps:
  1. 1.

    Deciding on the purchasing arrangement

  2. 2.

    Preparing the specification and bid request

  3. 3.

    Evaluating the bids and selecting the equipment

  4. 4.

    Placing the order and verifying its progress.

In the following sections, each of these steps is addressed with the emphasis on what is necessary for the successful procurement of centrifugal pumps.
