Scorecards that measure the performance of suppliers and vendors that a company contracts with have been a business tool embraced by procurement for some time now.
However, there’s an evolution underway. Increasingly businesses are recognizing that a holistic third party scorecard that also embeds risk and compliance metrics, can not only help drive continuous improvements in vendor performance, but can also help reduce the risk that third party engagements may bring to the enterprise. What’s more, scorecards can also be leveraged as a collaborative tool to help raise the collective bar of the third party ecosystem – especially in areas such as IT security. Operational risk, Information Security and Compliance are all now stepping up to the scorecard plate.

The modern organization is a complex web of relationships and interactions that span traditional business boundaries. Over half of the organization’s ‘insiders’ are no longer traditional employees, but rather third parties: suppliers, vendors, service providers, consultants, etc. Complexity grows as these interconnected relationships, processes, and systems nest themselves in layers of subcontracting.
