It’s time once again for our readership survey. We want to know you better and what you think of My Purchasing Center, the online publication for procurement and supply management professionals. 

 Drawing on our Purchasing magazine heritage (Our Chief Editor pioneered use of this planning tool), the editorial team is looking for your answers to two big questions: What information do you need to do your job? What information is hardest for you to find? With your responses, we can build the best publication for procurement professionals in the industry. 

Please take a few moments to complete the My Purchasing Center Readership Survey 2015. In it, we also ask questions about your responsibilities as a procurement professional. Again, this information will help us to better plan our articles, research, white papers, blogs, podcasts, webcasts, etc. 

As always, your individual responses to our survey will be confidential. If you have questions or comments or ideas for topics/stories we should be covering, please contact me at We thank you in advance for your time and your continued support of My Purchasing Center
