  Reporting Structure of Purchasing Managers
Phillip J. Ramirez
  Definitely not finance, as there could be a huge conflict of interests. There needs to be some sort of separation of duties.
However, I am not sure operations is the correct place either, as you need to have a supervisor who knows how purchasing works (the ins and outs) and can back you up when it's needed.

  Yes, you are right, the finance operation is related to many things including income and saving money, while the purchasing function is related to materials inflow.
So there is big difference the first is looking for profit, while the second is aimed at spending money to buy materials and other assets with high quality.
