Step One : Risk Analysis

Fundamentally, vendor management, when done properly, is same as the risk management. In this step, organizations must identify the relevance of the function to it, which activities will be performed by the vendor, and the inherent risk involved in the activity. The need for diligence during the selection process as well as in other stages like contracting, supervision, and monitoring. Without a doubt, for the regulatory purposes, all the stages of the risk analysis, without fail, must be documented carefully.

Step Two : Due Diligence in Vendor Selection

The results of your risk analysis in deciding to offer a contract to a vendor for providing services or goods will decide the intensity of the due diligence you need to select a vendor. The process involves an inquiry into the ability of a vendor to operationally comply with the requirements needed for the requested service as well as analyzing of the financial ability of the vendor to keep its promise.

Step Three : Documenting the Vendor Relationship Contract Issues

To manage the relationship with your vendor properly, it is necessary that you have a strong contract. You need a contract not only for vendors who provide high-risk services but also those who provide low-risk services.

Contracts must be in writing only. As much as possible, include all expectations as well as responsibilities. Other things that need to be included are the scope of work, fees, how the status of the work will be reported, and the frequency of reporting, the process to change the scope of the work, ownership of a work product, a clause stating the vendor is agreeable to regulatory review, information security, and privacy, a defined process to monitor on a regular basis, and dispute resolution. You should get your significant contracts reviewed by legal experts..

Step Four : Ongoing Supervision and Monitoring of Vendors

The contracts that organizations make must support their ability to regularly monitor vendors any time during the course of the contract. The best way to streamline this process is to assign the duty of supervising vendors to an employee. This employee should also be made accountable for the vendor’s performance. How stringent the supervision must be depends mainly on the assessment of the particular service’s risk (that is, the service that is being provided). It is necessary to ensure that the appointed staff possess the expertise, qualifications, and the experience required for this job.

At the least, one annual review of the financial condition as well as the insurance coverage should be include in the monitoring and supervision clause. Organizations must also review policies of the vendor that are related to internal controls as well as security. In addition, develop some method to determine if the vendor is adhering to such controls.

Reviewing and monitoring requires assessing if the services that the third party is providing are true to the representations made in the service contract and according to the relevant laws and regulations. Ensure the vendor has a contingency plan in place and review it to judge its viability. Ask the vendor to also adequately test it.

Document, Document, Document

Aligning with quality vendors and maintaining high-quality relationships with them to ensure smooth operations is the real purpose and aim of vendor management programs.

Complex, sometimes annoying and cumbersome Vendor management can be, but it is highly useful. When implemented correctly, it can help companies save substantial money, besides ensuring services are provided in a quality manner.

Many questions need absolute certain answers. The list of such questions includes, among others, the following: Is the architecture scalable? Will the solution dynamically scale under load? Do we comply with relevant regulations and rules? Are we using the best practices of our industry?

The Application Assessment process as well as the Auditing process entails use of tools and tasks for identifying, decoupling, assessing and understanding an application in totality. Once the audit process completes, the application and its elements can be optimally leveraged for re-engineering, go forward engineering, and the like.
