    Event Synopsis:
    Compliance is a stated objective for virtually every Procurement team, and the stakes were never higher.

The potential negatives of non-compliant spending or procurement practices on the company’s profitability and reputation are undeniable. But what about the upside of implementing compliant processes – how might a Return on Compliance (ROC) be calculated and what does it take to achieve Procurement’s ROC goals?
