Goods which are purchased to support the operation and which are not converted into finished products or resold.  Many manufacturing organisations separate direct materials, which are raw materials from ‘indirects’ such as cleaning, MRO supplies, travel, catering, printing, stationery etc. which are needed to support the operation.  Many indirect acquisitions are low value and low risk and so lend themselves to simple acquisition systems and e-Commerce, such as online ordering through catalogues.  See also Materials, Direct.
