STAR Procurement (a shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils), Glossary of Terms, published in May 2019, suggests that acquisition is a wider concept than procurement: ‘…it is the over-arching ‘whole life-cycle’ process, of which the procurement process is a sub-section. Involving suppliers in acquisition; particularly in the pre-procurement phase can add value to the procurement process.’
