As more companies seek to reduce costs, improve efficiency and ultimately improve profitability, many of them are using third-parties such as vendors and supplier to outsource their key functions, processes and operations. Despite the advantages associate with outsourcing, there exist various risks that companies need to consider in order to maximize the benefits of outsourcing. To control these risks, many companies are building third-party (vendor/supplier) risk management programs to help them identify, analyze, assess, mitigate and monitor those risks.
