Findings from The Deloitte Global CPO Survey 2013

Risk is one of the hot topics in the procurement and supply chain world at present. Over 50% of procurement leaders stated that they believed procurement related risks were increasing.

Key Findings:

  • 50% of CPOS said risk has increased over the last 12 months, compared to 5% who stated it had decreased;
  • The main risks that were of concern were reputational, regulatory and service delivery risks, although this varies by industry: E.g. life sciences – reputational; FSI - regulatory; manufacturing - commodity price volatility;
  • Overall 12% reported there was no owner for risk in their organisation;
  • Only 9% indicated Procurement as the main owner for risk;
  • Vast majority of CPOs indicated that they are involved in risk management, but limited to infrequent involvement such as attending meetings;
  • The sorts of management techniques in place are focused on policy and process governance.
