Vendor and Supplier Audits

Partner with trusted advisors to get more value from vendors

The challenge. Managing risk and quality with vendors and suppliers is growing increasingly critical as the reliance on vendor products and services has increased.

Protecting against over-zealous vendors and suppliers looking to exploit poorly managed supply chains can be a daunting task.

The reality. Identifying overbillings, non-compliance with service level agreements, and contractual requirements resulting in recoveries and risk mitigation to the organization requires significant compliance resources, a proven playbook and processes, and expert audit support.

The Impact. Overpayment to vendors and suppliers due to the lack of insight and visibility into a supplier over-billings, non-compliance with service-level agreements and contractual requirements.
