Purchasing contracts are applied in sectors and businesses of all kinds, although governments and large companies use them the most. Any transaction involving the purchase of goods or services from a seller or other external source should ideally be subject to such a contract. If the products or services are purchased in-house and do not concern an outside area, there is no need for a contract. There are different types of public procurement and their adequacy depends on the specific application scenario. An example of a market might be suitable for a fixed-price contract in one scenario, but not in another scenario.
