Best Practices for Using Data to Ensure a Resilient Public Sector Supply Chain

Government procurement and compliance teams are under pressure to deal with an increasing variety and pace of change and risk in the supply chain. From macro issues and regulations, to needing to scale and meet targets for SMEs, understanding risk exposure and building resilience in the supply chain is challenging. Furthermore, government departments must go beyond understanding the risk posed pre-award, to proactively monitor supplier relationships on an ongoing basis for changes in firmographics, regulation or beneficial ownership. During this session, attendees will learn: 

  • How to quality, structured data can help agencies to understand suppliers and the risk they pose 
  • How data can be used to improve the due diligence process and in entity resolution to provide a single view of a supplier cross-departments 
  • How automation and technology can be used to accelerate the contracting process and monitor change on an ongoing basis
