The word acquisition is sometimes used as a synonym for ‘purchasing’ in the context of the transactional processes associated with placing an order and arranging payment of the resulting invoice.  Some commentators also use the term 'acquisition' as a generic term to subsume purchasing, sourcing, category management and procurement.  When another company buys a company, ‘acquisition’ is frequently used to describe this process.  See also Procurement.
