Weighing the Risk
This feature article in Commodities Now warns of the dangers of failing to conduct assessments of third-parties to detect and prevent risk. Companies in infrastructure operation interact with a large number of third parties, including their customers, contractors, suppliers and commercial agents. Risk can include financial issues during the relationship, leading to delays in work and overall contract delivery; argumentative behavior, leading to delivery delays, additional costs and having to dedicate more company time and resources to manage the relationship; and corruption, leading to legal liability and reputational impact. However, companies can take steps to mitigate, manage and even create value from this situation.
