Due Diligence on Vendor Credentials
Every company should conduct due diligence before choosing a vendor. First, organizations should collect basic company information to determine whether the company is legitimate and licensed in the state. This information may include location details, company structure overview, references from credible sources, articles of incorporation and business licenses.
Financial information should also be collected to ensure that the chosen vendor is not facing any serious legal or financial problems that could cause them to close in the near future. This may include tax documents, balance sheets and similar data. Vendors may also need to prove that they do not pose reputational, cyber or operational risks. Once this information has been collected, it must be verified for truth and accuracy. This information will then be used to make a decision.
