Event Synopsis:

Compliance is a stated objective for virtually every Procurement team, and the stakes were never higher. Procurement’s role after all, is to be the steward of corporate spending on purchases that consume 50-75% of revenues. The potential negatives of non-compliant spending or procurement practices on the company’s profitability and reputation are undeniable. But what about the upside of implementing compliant processes – how might a Return on Compliance (ROC) be calculated and what does it take to achieve Procurement’s ROC goals?
