Topic: Audit Committee Meeting: Vendor Auditing Program – Implementing Best Practices
Discuss why ‘Supplier Contract Compliance Reviews’ serve as an invaluable tool for a client’s business. By conducting them regularly, the greater insight you will have into which suppliers should be chosen for review of their invoicing, operations, labor, and transportation costs and practices. Conducting an efficient evaluation and selection process before the audit begins will provide the possibility of better monetary returns for the company, as well as possible contractual improvements, help eliminate unnecessary expenses, and bolster the performance of the suppliers picked for review. These benefits cannot be overstated
