Revolutionising Governance Through Digital Procurement

MICG is beyond excited to announce the theme for the 10th National Procurement Conference in 2024 ‘Revolutionising Governance Through Digital Procurement’. This event marks a significant milestone in our journey towards transforming the procurement landscape.

In an era defined by unprecedented change and complexity, the procurement landscape is undergoing a profound evolution. Companies worldwide are grappling with escalating pressures to fortify their governance frameworks, particularly in ESG practices. To thrive amidst this disruption, adaptation is not just an option—it’s a necessity for survival.

Amidst mounting procurement costs and dynamic market forces, companies are compelled to seek innovative strategies to navigate the challenges ahead. The call for robust governance in procurement has never been more urgent, with digitalisation, procurement integrity, regulatory compliance (including e-invoicing), and the emergence of new ESG standards at the forefront of companies’ agendas. Procurement agility has swiftly emerged as a linchpin for success, enabling companies to endure and excel in this swiftly shifting landscape.

Additionally, the digitalisation of procurement processes has introduced new complexities and risks. From cyber security threats to data privacy concerns, companies must navigate a minefield of challenges to ensure the integrity and security of their procurement operations. Moreover, the rapid pace of technological advancement requires organizations to continually adapt and innovate to remain competitive, further amplifying the pressure on procurement teams.

Join us at the 10th National Procurement Conference to explore these critical topics and drive forward the revolution in governance through digital procurement. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter and more sustainable future for procurement practices. Let’s revolutionise governance together and shape the future of procurement.
