The Vendor Risk Management (VRM) team within SVM requires a contractor to execute on the risk assessment due diligence requirements of Legacy External Contract inclusion. A scope has been defined for completion by Q4 2016 and another for Q2 2017.
The risk assessment process is aimed at collecting information on Third Party Vendors and their products/services to conduct a screening and identify potential risks. For the Due Diligence process, collaboration with the following risk departments that are involved in the screening process will be required: IT Risk, Business Continuity Management (BCM), Anti-Corruption (BACC), Anti-Fraud, Sustainability Affairs (SA), Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Legal & Compliance (LCD). Use of a tool accessed by all stakeholders involved in vendor onboarding due diligence may be required.
