Dun & Bradstreet published its first-ever 2018 Compliance and Procurement Sentiment Report.

The report is the result of input received by more than 600 respondents from the US and UK answering a range of questions on confidence, concerns, risk, technology and priorities.  This premier edition of the report examines the current state of compliance and procurement and provides a sentiment score for these professionals.

The author of the report, Brian Alster, Global Head of Supply & Compliance at Dun & Bradstreet, refers to conversations with compliance and procurement professionals across the globe, stating their objectives remain unchanged: mitigate risk, reduce costs, and create world-class, advanced due-diligence programs.  These areas of focus are not mutually exclusive and cannot be done in silos. There are external and internal factors, often outside the compliance and procurement professional’s scope of responsibility, that impact success.  In this sentiment report, Dun & Bradstreet digs a little deeper into some of those factors uncovering areas of success and concern, both short-term and long-term.
