Three chapters of this dissertation deal with three different types of interactive purchasing situations, in which multiple buying organizations interact with similar (or possibly the same) suppliers for the procurement of the same commodity. Decisions to be made in interactive purchasing concern if and how to cooperate with other buying organizations. If so, one has to tackle the important question of how to allocate possible cost savings. And if not, how to interact with the supplier(s) on an individual strategic level, while taking into account the strategic behavior of the other purchasers.
