Valenta's Third Party Vendor Management Process

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.

Risk Classification

Including both MRA and IRA, Valenta offers world-class resources that can review or setup the most appropriate framework for risk classification. In line with best practices, and utilizing digitization and automation to streamline processes, risk can also be minimized through a highly structured globally proven blue-print. Our risk classification procedures will provide greater transparency, and a more in-depth understanding of risk, in a faster, more efficient way.

Due Diligence and Selection

Offering extensive pre-contract guidance for assessing and managing the dimensions of risk associated with third party relationships. Understand your risk landscape through the due diligence phase and make the right vendor selection.

Contract Facilitation & Negotiation

Automation will be deployed during the contract facilitation phase, integrated with your lifecycle vendor management process, creating a streamlined and efficient workflow. Engage digital tools that can identify that contract requirements are met, and facilitate all levels of approval, perfect for large and enterprise sized firms.

Ongoing Monitoring & Oversight

Conduct monthly, quarterly or annual vendor audits based on vendor tier, subject to risk rating and a series of organizational requirements. Customized solutions can be developed including a vendor portal to foster interaction between service managers and vendors.

Termination & Exit

Tied back to the contract management phase, a termination checklist is available for ease of reference and an in-depth understanding of vendor contractual requirements. Simplify the process with quickly accessible documentation.
