The Challenges

Performing regular audits on your suppliers is essential since their business practices directly impact your own. Supplier audits provide an effective method of identifying, eliminating, and preventing problems in a supplier’s processes, management, or products, as well as preventing fraud or breaches. Unfortunately, this is a wide scope that proves difficult to manage, especially with limited visibility.

Since many customers report their suppliers capturing data in spreadsheets and email documents, its difficult to have central visibility into current and past audit information. It’s also difficult to follow up on corrective actions and see to which degree mitigation is occurring.

Challenges include managing supplier underperformance, unreliable service deliveryinadequate security, or failure to meet contractual obligations; working with a third party can be risky business. It is critical to perform periodic audits on your suppliers to ensure that everything is operating as it should.

 

The Impact

Customers have previously discussed how supplier audits have been expensivedifficult to execute, and excessively time-consuming with their manual processes and previous software. This scenario drains company resources that are better suited for risk management efforts that create a positive impact.

Without a proper supplier audit program, organizations take on unnecessary risk regarding business continuity, finances, and brand reputation. A limited visibility process creates risk starting from the supplier selection and onboarding process, through periodic reviews of the supplier’s internal controls and policies, and even through everyday transactions.

Placing blind trust in your supplier without full visibility leaves your organization open to non-compliance fines and potential legal fees due to your suppliers’ practices. Poor business practices can cause your supplier to suddenly fail to meet contractual obligations without notice, leaving your organization struggling to continue operations as normal.
