pricing decisions

The price of an item is an important component of decision making in procurement, but is not the only factor for a final decision.  Write a three- to -four page, APA style paper that reviews the overall components of a pricing strategy.  Include examples from external research to support your views.  Describe a company that has used a purchasing strategy to improve the financial impact of the company.  Use at least one scholarly source from the Ashford University Library to obtain examples.
