  2. Are we doing the right things?
  3. Is the total cost of ownership applied?
  4. Are we buying what we need?
  5. How are savings measured?
  6. Are we working capital aware?
  7. Does procurement really control spend?
  8. Do we pay on time?
  9. What is the potential for reducing purchase cost?
  10. Do we have the right skills?
