FUSION21 is offering to donate £5 to charity for every completed response it receives for its second annual procurement trends survey.
The organisation is looking to identify the key drivers behind procurements decisions in the housing sector. It is also gathering individuals’ views on how external factors such as The Hackitt Report and Brexit influence the way they do their jobs.
An insight into topics including recruitment and asset spending patterns form another key element of the survey.
Last year’s Procurement Trends Report revealed that organisations up and down the country were increasingly acknowledging the strategic value of their procurement teams. More than two thirds (67%) of respondents reported 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.
Fusion21 will donate £5 to Cancer Research for each completed survey, and if that’s not enough incentive, the organisation said that all respondents will receive a copy of this year’s Procurement Trends Report and headline statistics in June.
