How can you maintain effective procurement risk management processes?

Each business formulates its own procurement risk management processes based on highly specific business objectives and strategies. 

Regardless of industry or the type of business, however, every procurement function is vulnerable to internal and external threats. Some of the most common procurement risks are:

Human resource gaps

Regulatory non-compliance

A poor choice of vendors

Inaccurate data

A lack of a vendor management system

An established risk management process is the best way to alleviate these risks and those associated with procurement delays, collapses, inefficiencies, and fraud while fostering a culture of continuous improvement.
