New American City & County survey identifies biggest problems facing public procurement departments in pandemic
A new, ongoing public procurement survey from American City & County and Bonfire shows that over half of surveyed procurement departments are struggling with their supply chains during the pandemic.
So far, 66.67 percent of respondents have said that navigating supply chain shortages was a point of strain in their procurement processes in the pandemic.
Meanwhile, the second most prevalent struggle for respondents’ departments has been finding new vendors in new categories as quickly as possible, which 35.29 percent of respondents reported facing, followed by 31.37 percent saying their procurement departments faced the struggle of re-prioritizing their procurement pipelines for urgent requests.
