The third Global Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) Survey marks Capgemini’s continued commitment to understanding the trends and issues affecting the procurement executive. Given the seismic upheavals in the financial markets and their inevitable impact on commerce, it has never been so important to assess and understand what this means for procurement within organizations.

The intent of the Global CPO Survey is to provide executives with insight into both macro issues and focus areas so they may be better informed concerning the challenges they face and the decisions they make.

  7. 7. Some of the highlights of the CPO survey 2009<br />eProcurement – Use and Penetration<br /><ul><li>Given that electronic enablers for procurement have now reached a reasonable state of maturity, we expected to find a healthy amount of use of.
  8. 8. What we found was quite the opposite. More than 60% of organizations stated less than 20% of their spend was channeled trough applications.</li></ul>Procurement Organizational Development – Evolving Models<br /><ul><li>Last year one of the major trends we assessed was the organizational models that procurement employed.
  9. 9. In the 2008 survey we found 63% of organizations favored a centralized model. In this year’s survey that number fell by over a third to just 36% of organizations.
  10. 10. We found that the use of hybrid models rose significantly from 22% in 2008 to 41% this year.</li></ul>7<br />

Some of the highlights of the CPO survey 2009 (2)<br />Spend Visibility – Improving the Line of Sight<br /><ul><li>The top area of focus for investment by surveyed organizations this year is on improving the quality of spend information and its availability. This remains consistent from the findings of the 2008 survey where it also ranked as the top priority.
  12. 12. It would seem that despite the spotlight on this over the past twelve months, the availability of quality management information remains an Achilles heel for the procurement professional.</li></ul>Effective Supplier Management – Managing Risk in the Supply Base<br /><ul><li>While cost reduction remains at the fore of the procurement agenda, the risk of supply disruption from financially distressed vendors is not far behind.
  13. 13. The survey results showed that a focus on supplier management to avoid business disruption from bankruptcies in the supply base was the second highest area of activity to the economic downturn.</li></ul>8<br />
