We Have Been Shortlisted! For Procurement Technology Of The Year 2020
Since its inception last year most organisations have adapted their processes to meet the data protection regulations set out by GDPR on 25th May 2018.
However, following the barrage of emails received by members of the team on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this got us thinking about GDPR again.
Now, if you want to know why you received countless emails from retailers trying to encourage you to use their 20% off codes or enticing you into buying a new hoover to obtain a ‘free car cleaning kit’, then this isn’t the blog for you, and we don’t have those answers. All we can say on that matter is, return periods are slightly longer this time of year, so if you’re sitting wondering why you decided to add 500HD channels to your TV package you should have some more time to reconsider!
If however, you are looking for what to include on a GDPR Supplier Questionnaire or a free template to base your questionnaire on, you’ve come to the right place.
So what should you be asking your current and prospective suppliers in regards to GDPR? And can you use your current eSourcing process to eliminate any future GDPR headaches?
Below we have put together a basic template of a GDPR Supplier Questionaire that could be sent out to all new suppliers before going to tender.
After all, GDPR was brought in to protect the data of organisations, as well as stopping unsolicited sales emails and ‘Black Friday’ offers!
