This paper sheds light on project purchasing activities by applying the existing bodies of organizational and project purchasing literature in the specific project context. The findings disclose that project purchasing activities in the studied context are characterized by project-specific traits and limited learning outcomes from one project to another. Furthermore, the study reveals the importance of a more holistic approach to project purchasing practices by focusing on the entire life cycle of a project. Managerially it helps selling companies to understand the peculiar buying phases and the timing related to it.
