KPMG presents its second annual survey on the priorities of CIS companies to develop their compliance function in 2017.
As in 2016, the survey covers challenges related to organization of the compliance function, its goals and objectives, resource issues, practical implementation of control procedures, and reporting.
This year, we placed greater emphasis on business process automation and its impact on the compliance system. This was made intentionally since the automation of business processes and control procedures are today considered a tool for improving the performance of companies, which are still performing a large number of operations manually. The findings of our survey will help companies operating in the CIS to assess their compliance functions and benchmark the level of their compliance functions from the perspective of process automation practices.
The following report is a summary of responses received from respondents. In the appendices, you will find in-depth information for each of these countries: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
