Centralized purchasing is having one special department working with suppliers and decentralized purchasing is having separate locations handling their own purchasing. Centralized purchasing can use volume as leverage to obtain better pricing. Decentralized purchasing has an advantage because purchasing can work closer with the plant and offer a quicker response.
