What is the best reporting structure for purchasing / procurement managers? Should they report to finance or operations?

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.
