Vendor Screening Services

Outsourcing projects to third-party vendors is a great way to scale your business, and as it grows, so too will your vendor list. 

More vendors mean more risk, however.

Financial Screening

Most clients want to know how effectively their suppliers handle their own financial obligations. One helpful financial screening technique is to leverage information from the national network of credit bureaus, Dun & Bradstreet, and other similar services, to gain an up-to-date, objective analysis of the overall financial health of suppliers.

Thorough financial screening can lend insights into all of the following, and more, including:

  • Company Background & General Information
  • Years in Business
  • Total # of Employees
  • Years Since Management Change
  • Industry Comparisons
  • Financial & Banking Information
  • Existence & Age of Balance Sheets
  • Quick & Current Ratios
  • Net Worth
  • Total Assets & Liabilities
  • Net Profit After Taxes
  • Trends From Previous Statements
  • Payment Records
  • Variance of PAYDEX Scores & Difference From Industry Norm
  • Number & Dollar Amount of Total Payment Experiences & Percentages of Satisfactory or Past Due Payment Experiences
  • Public Record Information
  • Number & Dollar Amount of Suits, Liens, Judgments, & Bankruptcies
  • Number of UCC Filings
  • Business Deterioration
  • Permit Collection & Verification
  • Expiration Tracking & Electronic Expiration Notifications to Suppliers & Clients

The financial health of even one of your company’s suppliers can, unfortunately, make or break your business.

It’s therefore wise to assess the risk of current and potential suppliers to help ensure your company receives its deliveries and services on time, successfully collects payments when they are due, and is not in trouble should a supplier go out of business unexpectedly.

Conducting such due diligence will decrease your risk.

Regulatory Screening

Protect Your Business From Terrorism, Money Laundering, Identity Theft & Fraud

It is integral for all businesses receiving federal funding or making payments to include a provision in their compliance policies to ensure they are not doing business with restricted individuals or entities placed on the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) list.

Depending on your industry, federal laws may require companies screen each vendor, contractor, and employee’s debarment status against certain exclusion databases.

These federal databases include, but are not limited to:

BCS-Blog-Whats-theDifference
  • General Services Administration’s (GSA) Excluded Parties List System (EPLS)
  • Office of Foreign Asset Control’s (OFAC) Specially
  • Designated Nationals List (SDN)
  • Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS) Denied Persons List (DPL) and Entity List
  • Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE)

HSE Screening

Companies that invest in a strong Environment, Health & Safety (HSE) program are investing in the future well-being of their employees.

HSE screening ensures vendors are in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Process Safety Management (PSM) Standard and the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Risk Management Program (RPM) Rule.

An effective EHS Screening procedure may deliver helpful insights pertaining to:

  • Worksite Analysis (to identify hazards)
  • Management Participation
  • Employee Involvement in Safety & Health Decisions
  • Prevention & Control Measures
  • Training & Implementation
  • Permit Collection & Verification
  • Full Document Tracking & Management Services — HSE and Quality Certificates (for companies and employees)
  • Expiration Tracking & Electronic Expiration (notifications to suppliers and clients)
