4 — Vendor Risk Assessment

For vendors that are negotiating or providing an offer to our members CAUDIT is conducting a risk assessment and making the results of that risk assessment available to our members for consideration/inclusion in their internal purchasing processes. This is an important element in ensuring offers and agreements put forward have due diligence completed, that members are able to understand the risk of engaging with these vendors, and to reduce duplication of risk assessments across CAUDIT members.
