Who we help

 

Procurement and sourcing

Get expertise and assistance in selecting the right supplier to avoid legal, regulatory and reputational risks.

Our solutions can help you assess whether your proposed supplier has financial strength, delivery expertise and an integrity profile that is favourable to your business.

Selecting the right suppliers is a growing field, with a raft of new legislation and expectations being placed on procurement and vendor-management teams. Those expectations are complex because they involve several different stakeholders in the company representing the various functional groups that now want to be involved in supplier compliance.

In the procurement of a new supplier, it is common to see the following teams involved:

Legal – to oversee contracts and legal risk, confidentiality, privacy and intellectual property

Compliance – to consider Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and bribery risks (as required by law and policies)

Export control and trade compliance – regarding inbound licenses and approvals

Product teams – for embedded licences, encryption and product quality

CSR teams – for supplier conformity with standards around human rights, the environment and sustainability

Finance – for reviewing financials and business statuses

Safety – for reviewing safety practices

Privacy counsel – for reviewing the use of private information and General Data Protection Regulation compliance

Information services and technology – for access to systems and hosting

Are you a procurement professional? Contact us now to get help understanding the challenges of managing all these stakeholders and the onboarding process.
