Second-Tier Purchases

Whenever a prime contractor utilizes a subcontractor to fulfill a contract, the portion of the contract that went to the subcontractor is regarded as a second-tier purchase. The amount paid to the prime contractor is a direct purchase.

The process of subcontracting suppliers to support a prime contractor's fulfillment of a contract is referred to as Second-tier Sourcing. Subcontractors are also known as Second-tier Suppliers.
