Fusion21 Launches Procurement Trends Survey

It’s back - we’re surveying Fusion21 members and UK public procurement professionals for the second year running, to find out more about the key drivers behind procurement decisions.

The Fusion21 Procurement Trends Survey 2019 is also gathering individuals' views on how external factors such as The Hackitt Report and Brexit influence the way they do their jobs – and will provide an insight into topics including recruitment and asset spending patterns.

Last year's survey, and the resulting Procurement Trends Report 2018 revealed that organisations up and down the country were increasingly acknowledging the strategic value of their procurement teams, with more than two thirds (67%) of respondents reporting procurement is considered a strategic function.

In the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire, results confirmed compliance had been the focus of renewed scrutiny. More than half (51%) of those surveyed said the tragedy had led to their organisation placing greater emphasis on quality when making procurement decisions, especially in relation to fire safety.
