Why Perform Third Party Audits?
An acceptance of the status quo
Years ago organisations often on-boarded third parties and began conducting business with them as soon as the due diligence process of the risk-assessment was concluded. Though they are now fully aware that they are responsible for the acts of their distributors, intermediaries, and third parties, they often do little more than conduct due diligence using standard public data.
We improve upon the minimum due diligence
Going beyond the superficial public information that is available on websites or in the media, our auditors dig deep into companies' practices, conducting reviews and audits to limit your risk of exposure. This is particularly important for partners that your organisation might consider "high risk".
Experienced criminals require experienced auditors
Many organisations realise the benefits that audits present, however they often rely on in-house staff to conduct audits that are too superficial to identify any major issues. These risks can be taken advantage of by experienced criminals that are capable of outsmarting auditors who are not specialised in this specific crime field.
We differentiate through specialisation
In order to conduct complex audits with clear and deep mandates, auditors specialised in compliance and specifically anti-corruption are required. This significantly reduces your risk of exposure and limiting the amount of time required to perform our services. Our network is spread throughout the globe with an innate knowledge of local languages, laws, and criminal behaviour.
Since our inception in 2006, auditing compliance programmes and particularly anti-corruption compliance programmes has been the focus of our business. However, as our renowned team of compliance specialised auditors has grown to cover more and more of the globe over the years, it made sense to leverage their specialisation and localisation for more than just certification. Thus, our Partner Integrity Audit Solution products were created to expand the portfolio of services for which our auditors are available.
