The price of an item is an important component of decision making in procurement but is not the only factor for a final decision.  Research a company that has used a purchasing strategy to improve the financial impact of the company. Write a three- to four-page (excluding title page and reference pages), APA formatted paper that evaluates the overall components of the company’s pricing strategy.  Include relevant examples from external research to support your evaluation.  Where necessary, use scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library, in addition to the textbook, to obtain support for your evaluation.     Benton, W.C.
