    for our practise in public sector firms, we use to calculate the following fo obtain the Total Purchase Order Procesing Cost:-
    1) Salaries of the concern’s employees.
    2) Any other employees expenses such as (Air Tickets, Annual leaves, Stationaries, Firnitures, Hardwares used during processing LPOs…)
