dc.description.abstractDiversas estructuras legales permitidas por las leyes del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico permiten que grupos de empresas aglomeren sus gestiones de compras y obtenga ventajas competitivas, incluyendo economías de escala en la negociación de acuerdos de compraventas. Debido a que cada estructura legal tiene sus propias leyes, reglamentos y requisitos; se comparó las diferentes estructuras legales desde su ordenamiento jurídico. Las estructuras legales consideradas son la corporación regular, íntima y sin fines de lucro, la Sociedad regular civil, mercantil o de responsabilidad limitada, las Cadenas Voluntarias y la Cooperativa Comercial. El marco conceptual utilizado se basa en el análisis de literatura, en especial, en las tres áreas de calidad en operaciones de compras de AT&T, basado en el “Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award”: asociación empresarial, gerencia financiera y excelencia operacional. El resultado del método de pluralidad indica que la cooperativa comercial es la estructura legal con mayores factores positivos.
dc.description.abstractDiverse legal structures allowed by the Laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico allow business enterprises to aggregate their purchasing efforts and thus obtain a competitive advantage, including economies of scales in groups of small sized enterprise’ procurement activities. Since each legal structure has its own Laws, regulations, and requisites, they were compared according to their legal circumstances. The legal structures analyzed are the following: the Corporation (regular, closed, and non-profit), Partnerships (civil/regular, commercial or limited responsibility), Voluntary Chains, and Commercial Cooperatives. The framework was developed from the literature review, mainly the quality areas in AT&T’s procurement activities based on “Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award”: business partnership, financial management, and operational excellence. The results of the plurality analysis indicate that Commercial Cooperative is the legal structure with more positive outcomes.
