More than 600 respondents from the US and UK answered 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.

In conversations with compliance and procurement professionals across the globe, 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, we dig a little deeper into some of those factors. We uncover areas of success and concern, both short-term and long-term.
