Abstract: During the study of the production and financial activities of agricultural holdings, we found that the greatest difficulties for the management of associations are caused by operations related to the selection and purchase of agricultural equipment, which is due to the lack of established internal rules, prescribed instructions for managing purchases of agricultural equipment, standardizing this process by documenting all elements of the flowchart of the process. To fix this problem, we have developed a process model for managing purchases of agricultural equipment in an agricultural holding, which includes the following processes: preliminary selection of bidders for a closed tender; collection and analysis of data on the competitive advantages and disadvantages of prospective bidders; formation and approval of updated technical specifications, criteria for evaluating equipment and suppliers, approval of the list of companies admitted to the tender; conducting a tender. Information and documentation support of the procurement management process of agricultural equipment has been developed, including a set of instructions. These instructions are essentially internal regulations (standards) regulating the procurement process at the level of the agricultural holding. The implementation of the proposed process model for managing purchases of agricultural equipment, including information and documentation support for this process in the form of local regulations (standards), will allow integrated organizations to quickly manage processes and purposefully improve them, involve employees of the structure in the analysis and improvement of processes, create all conditions for the development of a quality management system in the agricultural holding.
