PRIMARY CONTACTS:

A capability is anything an organization does well that drives meaningful business results. Capabilities drive up resilience, and drive down risk.

We perform capabilities and maturity assessments to understand how an organization’s Third-Party Risk Management program stacks up next to comparable organizations in against leading practices as well as help to identify bottlenecks and target areas of improvement. The assessment process evaluates an organization’s level of maturity for critical components of a TPRM program, and quantitatively scores that level of maturity. Ultimately, this assessment helps organizations develop and/or mature a centralized governance model and provides the tools to maintain it and continuously improve. The following are examples of areas to benchmark and assess maturity:

  • Program governance
  • Policies, standards and procedures
  • Contract management
  • Vendor risk identification and analysis
  • Skills and expertise
  • Communication and information sharing
  • Tools, measurement and analysis
  • Monitoring and reviewing
