How and What We Buy


Enabling Our Partners to Thrive​

We are trusted and valued partners that enable competitive advantage through best-in-class procurement strategies and organization. Our mission is to deliver sustainable competitive advantage through agile, efficient, safe, and compliant procurement processes and solutions.


 How We Buy

The Global Procurement function in DuPont is organized to leverage our buying power effectively. We are structured around three primary categories: Direct, Indirect, and Logistics. A global director leads each area, and within each buy space, there are global managers who work closely with the various DuPont businesses and functions to procure the many categories of materials and services needed.


Who Can Buy

Buy Execution Authority is needed for anyone to procure materials or services on behalf of DuPont. This authority is granted to personnel in buying roles and on buying teams. Only someone with the proper Buy Execution Authority can establish an agreement that commits DuPont funds to be paid to a supplier. Someone without Buy Execution Authority cannot "buy" on behalf of DuPont
