    Thumbs up procurement use

    Administrative services managers generally work in comfortable offices, Managers involved in contract administrative and personal property procurement use, and disposal may travel between their home office, branch offices, vendors' offices, and property sales Also, facility managers who are responsible for then design of workspaces may spend time at construction sites and may travel between different facilities while monitoring the work of maintenance, grounds, and custodial staffs.

    Hi,
    Dictionaries say:
    proˈcurement /prəˈkjʊəmənt/ n
    • the act or an instance of procuring
    • the act of buying
    • (as modifier)

    In spite of that I can't understand what "Procurement use" means. Because it doesn't make sense to me. Does it mean "buying use"? If yes then does it make sense to for you?

    Thank you

    Re: procurement use

    I found the original source.
    Career Information - Administrative Services Managers
    There is a comma in the original source before and after the word "use"
    Thank you.

    Re: procurement use

    So with that comma you know it means "people who manage buying, using, and disposing of property" but it's not the smoothest writing I have ever seen.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
