Procurement Dept is more on suppliers relationship, pricing and competitors activities monitoring. Though it also oversees the quality of the raw materials being purchased, still QA/QC will check the quality of raw materials the PD delivered to the site.
From Post2 I deduce that from a quality POV, your QA authorises whether a Supplier may be placed on the Approved Supplier's List before starting a routine supply? ie similar to post7.
It is not unknown IMEX of some Companies for the Managing Director to have the final vote. Where the "buck" literally stops.
