Participate in AFP's FP&A Benchmarking Survey

In most years, creating a budget or forecast is challenging, but it's especially difficult now, due to the abnormal basis of comparison (2020 and 2021 have been anything but normal!), changes in the consumer market, supply chain disruptions, or any number of changes that render business-as-usual assumptions as misleading or outdated.

AFP’s FP&A Benchmarking Survey will help you create and defend your planning assumptions in selected, challenging areas, based on input from the finance community. Companies are keen to know if their 2022 assumptions are appropriate and within reasonable bounds in areas related to pandemic response, supply chain disruptions, inflation, and other areas. The resulting data repository will be a tool that companies can refer to throughout the year to understand their own assumptions, how the economy is changing, and assess their risk appetites as measured in their projections.

What is Benchmarking?

You will enter data using a survey tool that anonymizes and aggregates individual responses. Then, you will be able to filter the data by relevant demographics (company size, geography, industry), and then download comparative reports, benchmarking results and key performance indicators. Within these reports you will be able to view and compare responses with that of your peers.  

Participate now and we will email you in late October when the data is robust and ready to assist in your planning process.

To ensure your information is included, you must complete at least 50 percent of the survey.
