Procurement and Sourcing Professionals

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

 

Our solutions can help you assess if your proposed supplier has the financial strength, delivery expertise and 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 that represent the various functional groups that are now wanting to be involved in supplier compliance.

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

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

  • Compliance to consider FCPA and bribery risks (as required by law and policies)

  • Export control and trade compliance about in-bound licenses and approvals

  • Product teams for embedded licences, encryption and product quality

  • CSR teams for human rights, trafficking and supplier conformity with standards around environmental and sustainability

  • Finance for review of financials and business status

  • Product stewardship for use of conflict minerals

  • Privacy Counsel for review of use of private information and GDPR

  • Information services and IT for access to systems, hosting

  • Safety for review of safety practices
