Valenta's Third Party Vendor Management Process

Third-Party-Vendor-Management

Planning Phase

Critical to the success of vendor management, the planning phase is focused on vendor requirements including scope of work and deliverables and the development of planning checklists to ensure all key stakeholder requirements are met. Digitization of this process can be developed (if not already) to streamline planning. Valenta will create processes to ensure a robust program; for example linking the Expense Request Process (ERP) to ensure it communicates with the third party risk management tool, if appropriate. Further to this, vendor portals or document depositories can add immense value, and reduce this time consuming part of vendor management. Create structures to safeguard the foundation for selection.
