What are today's challenges in Procurement?

At KPMG, we understand the biggest challenges in Procurement and work collaboratively with our clients to overcome them. 

Supplier risk management

Companies are grappling with challenges in managing supplier risk, including assessing unpredictable financial stability, navigating geopolitical uncertainties and managing heavy reliance on single suppliers.


Navigating complex regulations, mitigating legal risks and integrating sustainable practices demand meticulous attention to detail and ongoing efforts to align Procurement processes with evolving compliance requirements.

Spend transparency

Limited visibility into organizational spending hampers effective decision-making. Inadequate insight may result in missed opportunities for cost savings and hinder strategic planning.

Reduce manual & non-value-added activities

Manual tasks, data entry and administrative processes unnecessarily divert resources from strategic functions.

Lack of controls over Procurement activities

Without proper oversight, companies risk fraud, unauthorized purchases, and contract mismanagement.

Sustainability in Procurement

The strategic involvement of the Procurement department is crucial for ensuring compliance with emerging ESG regulations. By integrating Sustainable Procurement practices such as circular economy, life cycle assessment, local sourcing, green specifications, and transparency in the supply chain your organization can not only be compliant with the current regulation but also achieve a unique competitive advantage in the eyes of customers.

Navigating success: our proven approach

At KPMG we help our clients address these challenges by defining their Procurement Target Operation Model around 6 key levers: strategy, governance, processes, technology, delivery model and talent
