Risk, Risk & More Risk: Learn to Cope as You Navigate the Procure-to-Pay Process

Available on Demand

Today, risk to your institution can come from anywhere. The procurement processes, and the supplier relationships inherent in them are no exception. In the past, you could rely on internal controls to manage rogue spend, and on simple sourcing due diligence to identify potential supplier risk. However, itís no longer sufficient to rely on risk measures focused primarily on evaluating supplier financial stability and collecting insurance certificates. New risk and compliance drivers such as OCC 2013-29, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and the impact of supplier actions on brand reputation have changed the game by expanding the risk profile of supplier relationships dramatically.
