    Today we observe an continuing challenge to develop performance measures that evaluate purchasing effectiveness relative to the organization's objectives and to extend conventional measurement systems to an entreprise-wide purchasing control function that detects the 'weak sports' in the purchasing function. In this paper we address the observed challenge by presenting a conceptual framework for purchasing control that identifies different possible control-configurations. Furthermore, we show how data envelopment (DEA), can be used as a supporting tool in purchasing control by explicitly relating the resources employed in purchasing to the goals achieved.
