SITXINV003 – Purchase goods

$275.00 Inc GST

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to determine the purchasing requirements for goods, source suppliers, discuss requirements, and assess the quality of goods before purchase.

It does not cover the specialist skills to systematically purchase and control the supply of goods for an organisation. These skills are covered by:

  • SITXINV004 Control stock
  • SITXINV005 Establish stock purchasing and control systems.

The unit applies to all tourism, travel, hospitality and event industry sectors where the purchase of any type of good takes place, including food and beverage supplies. Purchasing goods may involve placing an order for future delivery or purchasing goods face-to-face and taking immediate delivery.

The unit applies to operational personnel who operate with some level of independence and under limited supervision. This includes tour coordinators, account managers for professional conference organisers, event coordinators and banquet coordinators. In a kitchen environment it can apply to chefs of all levels, including commis chefs, but in larger organisations purchasing often remains the responsibility of sous chefs and executive chefs.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
