Knowledge & Information

We are increasingly living in an age where the supply of information seems to be constant, but sifting through the right information to find the material relevant to your work is not so easy.

This is why IMPA has developed a number of tools and facilities to help purchasing and supply professionals gain access to information and data that is appropriate and useful in day to day activities. The IMPA Library & Resource Centre provides past papers, articles, news and research material. The beauty of joining the IMPA network is that if there’s something you would like added you simply have to ask IMPA and we will research the topic on your behalf.
