Risk alignment with outsourcing suppliers is essential
from Supply Management
Procurement professionals and their outsourcing suppliers are unclear as to where the responsibility for risk management and due diligence lies between them, leaving both parties exposed. That is a key finding of a new study. According to the research, opinion is sharply divided on whether the customer or the supplier should take responsibility for political/regional risks. The research revealed only 8 percent of providers thought they should manage such risk for an outsourcing project, compared with 49 percent of customers who said suppliers should manage it.
