Research Report: The CPO-CIO Relationship Survey Report

The role played by information technologies (IT) in public procurement has increased dramatically in the past two decades. By most accounts the trend is expected to continue into the future. The success of any adoption process depends heavily on the relationship between internal stakeholders. Within this context, the relationship between an organization’s Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) and Chief Information Officer (CIO) becomes of particular interest. This report provides the findings of recent research that evaluated some challenges and opportunities within the relationships between CPOs and CIOs.
