Third party and supplier relationships are vital for achieving core business objectives. These relationships rely on contracts to define responsibilities, contain costs, and mitigate risk. Well-crafted contracts define responsibility, compensation, and risk, but without a monitoring process, the existence of these terms will not guarantee compliance. Many companies find that management of third party agreements can easily fall victim to competing priorities and misunderstandings between stakeholders. Complicated agreements can be particularly difficult to manage if the company lacks industry-specific expertise required to recognize performance issues in real time.
Well-crafted contracts define responsibility, compensation, and risk, but without a monitoring process, the existence of these terms will not guarantee compliance. Since many organizations lack verification resources, non-compliance oftentimes appears only after financial loss or other damages occur. Proactive, third party contract audits can detect important compliance issues before they affect earnings, confuse contract terms, and jeopardize key supplier relationships.
