In order to cater to the ever increasing demand for ISMM courses, the institute has recently invested in a new training centre consisting of four floors conveniently located at 94, Pepiliyana Road, Gangodawila, Nugegoda on the 117, Bus Route. The Institute of Supply and Materials Management is the pioneer institution for the propagation of supply chain education in Sri Lanka.
ISMM was incorporated by Act of Parliament No.03 of 1981 on 29 January 1981. In 1980 ISMM was affiliated to the International Federation of Purchasing & Supply Management (IFPSM) based in UK.

In recognition of its expertise the ISMM was able to obtain the membership of the Organisation of Professional Associations of Sri Lanka (OPA) on 3 September 1976. Since then ISMM plays a vital role in OPA activities. ISMM is also registered under the Tertiary & Vocational Education Commission (TVEC) under reference P01/0160. In 2001, ISMM was affiliated to the International Trade Centre (ITC) to conduct its MLS-SCM programs in Sri Lanka.
