This issue has been debated from every angle, politically to economically. Ideally, the procurement professional should be concerned with the best-value sourcing, whether that is local or global. Saving money on manufacturing parts internationally, may allow the company to add jobs locally in another area. There will always be disagreements where outsourcing is concerned, however don’t allow this issue to undermine what a procurement was designed for. Concentrate on finding the best-value sourcing for your company, and incorporate those savings to enhance your company.
