Supply Chain Management can be defined as a collaborative strategy that aims to integrate procurement and provisioning processes in order to eliminate non-value added cost, infrastructure, time and activities to fast track service delivery. The essence of SCM is to develop integrated planning of operations, tactics and strategies.

The Supply Chain Management unit has the responsibility to develop a list of accredited providers of goods and service. SCM should, at least once every year, through newspapers commonly circulating within the area, invite prospective providers to apply for listing as accredited prospective providers.
