1.1  Background To The Study

 

The effective management of stock is essential for the smooth running of an organization. This is because without enough stock, health services rendered to patients may be obstructed as a result of lack and insufficient drugs .According to (chopra and mendi 2007) many organization stock constitute one of the largest single investment in assets and to some extent some organizations have maintained high level of stock to enhance the continuous availability of stocks for the employees. Stock is also referred to as inventory which is defined as comprising of .raw materials, work-in-progress, finished goods and supplies used for the production of an organizations goods and services Coyle et al (2003). Stocks also consist of the number of units and value of stock of goods held by the organization.  The holding of stock by organizations is to avoid the problem arising as a result of stock out. The Level of stock holding is determined by the organizations operational needs, availability of capital, cost of storage, the need for detailed records through the use of store records and the time required to obtain deliveries of stock. With each of this factors considered, stock level can be determined for each item of stock which should be recorded in the stock records and as a policy no stock item should be released without an approved materials requisition form.  On the operational level of business it is pertinent to institute policies on stock to address issues of uncertainty and variations. This is because the uncertainty and variability of the timing and content of information flow and goods flow leads to uncertain planning, which leads to  stock outs,  and delays and increased costs,.
