Obtención, adquisición, consecución.//Motivación//adquisición pública de bienes y servicios
Explanation:
Also: procurement contract: contrato mediante el que un ente estatal adquiere bienes y servicios.
Procurement law: Conjunto de normas que regulan la adquisicion de bienes y servicios por entes estatales.

See: Procurement: it is the act of obtaining something such as supplies for an army or other organization. A formal word.

Also:public procurement

Obtaining goods or services for the use of the public sector. Procurement in this sector is often formalized, and contracts for public works, supplies, or services, which can be large, are advertised for formal tender. In the 1970s the EU, finding that most public contracts in the EU were placed with local suppliers, issued directives requiring that large public supply and works contracts must be advertised throughout the EU and be open to all who meet the requirements set out in them. These directives have been amended and revised and now extend to cover services and utility contracts. Three alternative procedures for submitting tenders are set out in the directives; of these, the open procedure is generally regarded as the fairest and is the one that must most often be used. The basic principle for all three procedures is that if the value of a contract for public works, supplies, or services (or of a contract for utilities whether in the public sector or not) is over a certain minimum financial level, the contract must be advertised in the EU's Official Journal and suppliers from all EU states are entitled to put in tenders. The company winning the contract must be chosen fairly in accordance with formulae set down in the relevant directive. When the procedure is not followed, there is a right to claim damages under separate remedies directives.

adquisición


Explanation:
This is a confusing term that has a number of meanings depending on the context. If its procurement of services for government use or according to established lawsm then the above definition is correct.

Also listed are the following: aprovisionamiento y obtención(it sounds correct too.)

abastecimiento / compras


Explanation:
En el contexto industrial se lo traduce de esta forma.
Por ejemplo, los contratos "EPC" (Engineering-Procurement-Construction), una sigla muy frecuente en grandes obras, se traducen como "ICC" (Ingeniería-Compras-Construcción). Un "Procurement manager" es el gerente de compras, o de abastecimiento.
Por cierto, "adquisición" también es correcto, pero me parece que menos frecuente en este contexto.

Saludos,

Patricia
