Third-Party Risk Management Solution (TPRM) also know as 3PRM™

 

The third-party risk management solution includes establishing the legal compliance, financial viability, and integrity levels of outside partners, suppliers, customers, and other sources worldwide that seek potential affiliations with your organization.

If your organization requires any of the following within your compliance checklist, then you must consider a third-party risk management solution:
  • Have a lack of visibility or understanding danger of the risks posed by your relationships with many types of third parties?
  • Want greater visibility into third-party performance and risks?
  • Need to improve operational costs, process, efficiencies, and organizational agility associated with your third-party relationships?
  • Need to gain greater control over the related risks?
  • Want to be confident that third parties are compliant with your business’ policies, as well as their own—based on government regulations and industry requirements?

The role or size of the third party is not as important as the nature of the relationship they have with your business. Think of your third-party level of access to your sensitive data or your property! A cleaning company with access to your filing cabinet represents a different but still significant risk. And remember, you are accountable for the inappropriate actions of any of your third parties.

3PRM™ is especially critical when your business:

  • Performs pre-merger & acquisition research
  • Conducts due diligence
  • Engages new clients
  • Employs, contracts or retains foreign business partners
  • Requires a consistent & audit-worthy anti-money laundering & anti-corruption compliance program

When implementing 3PRM™, you can focus on:

  • Providing third-party risk assessments
  • Meeting contracting requirements
  • Conducting integrity due diligence
  • Providing management oversight

And avoid:

  • Merging with an international business embroiled in behind-the-scenes legal battles
  • Getting caught up in making procurement decisions involving the inappropriate influence of government officials who were slated to receive kickbacks
  • Partnering with organisations that are potential credit risks, have claimed bankruptcy, have dissolved stated companies or are faced with debtor filings.
  • Awarding work to an overseas contractor with absolutely no prior experience
  • Affiliating with a contracting company owned by a politician with significant influence on future awards

CRI® Group’s Third-Party Risk Assessments are front-line tools used to ascertain whether an organisation has the proper policies and procedures in place to address all potential risks at the management, operations and financial levels, and simulates the likelihood of those risks actually occurring. 

A 3PRMTM assessment includes a review of internal auditing procedures, compliance guidelines, performance criteria, internal controls, reporting processes and contractual requirements that are vital to foster a long-term positive outcome with the third-party provider when looking at the relationship from a cost-benefit standpoint.

Specific areas addressed in a 3PRMTM assessment include:

  • Audit and supervision functions that assign clearly defined responsibilities within the organisation
  • Business continuity plans that take into account natural disasters and third-party business closures
  • Supply-chain alternatives that react and respond to every possible scenario, from regional events to currency fluctuations
  • Jurisdictional considerations and affiliations with potential partners located in regions that may be prohibited by law
  • Data and intellectual property protection, which includes customer privacy and information security considerations
  • Anti-corruption and whistle-blower policies begin with staff education and extend to safe internal and external reporting mechanisms which are easily accessible to management and staff.

Our 3PRMTM assessments ensure tight controls to mitigate key risks and designate specific staff responsible for maintaining those controls. Any gaps that are detected in those controls are addressed during the assessment phase.

A 3PRMTM assessment verifies whether the proposed third-party relationship is consistent with the organisation’s strategic plan and overall business strategy.

Europe's Horse Meat Scandal was a Warning for Due Diligence – Lessons Learned

Europe’s Horse Meat Scandal was a Warning for Due Diligence – Lessons Learned

The 2013 scandal in Europe over the inclusion of horse meat in food products purchased by consumers who believed they were 100 per cent beef turned a spotlight on the importance of oversight in the corporate supply chain. The scandal began when Irish authorities found traces of horse DNA in “value-based” frozen beef burgers made by processors in Ireland and Britain and sold in Tesco, Aldi, and other major supermarkets across Europe. Further testing also showed the presence of pig DNA in the beef burger samples.
