Job Description for Purchasing Coordinator

A purchasing coordinator is responsible for routine and impromptu purchases made by a company from its affiliated vendors. This includes the duties of preparing and processing purchase orders or purchase requests, keeping records of purchases, keeping vendor information up to date, providing training on related applications and policies, and preparing descriptions and bids when necessary. A purchasing coordinator facilitates the acquisition of company supplies and equipment and ensures that vital inventory is kept in stock. Once an order is placed with a vendor, the purchasing coordinator will schedule delivery of the desired items and ensure that the purchase is properly documented and recorded. The purchasing coordinator will guarantee that materials, supplies, and equipment orders are placed in a timely fashion so that the company does not suffer a shortage. The job requires communicating with representatives in other departments of the company for supply orders, keeping those employees up to date on the status of orders that have already been placed, and assisting with any necessary returns. The purchasing coordinator will work closely with the accounting department to resolve problems with invoices and set up accounts with new vendors, and will be the point of contact within the company for any vendor inquiries or issues. No college degree is required to work as a purchasing coordinator, but a successful applicant will have a high school diploma and experience working in a related position. Good communication skills and attention to detail are necessary, and a purchasing coordinator should have no trouble operating standard office equipment including computers, fax machines, and scanners or copiers.
