Companies are increasingly turning to acquisitions and to outsourced distribution, sales, and service providers to grow their businesses and access new markets.  Regulators are now, more than ever, holding companies accountable for the compliance failures of acquired entities and affiliated third parties.  As a result, the need for a documented, risk-based and multi-component approach towards the due diligence of third parties has grown in importance. 

GCSG's unique experience and product solutions can provide companies with the confidence their international third party relationships and acquisition targets are suitable partners.  GCSG has the ability to assess and develop your third-party compliance program, assign a relative risk score and audit your prospective third party relationships for potential risks that may result in financial exposure or reputational damage.  In addition, we will provide customized compliance training to fit your organization's needs.

Third-Party Risk Ranking Tool

Third-Party Dashboard - Print Screen (2).png

GCSG has developed an excel based risk ranking tool that enables us to assign a risk score to your third parties.  The tool can be customized to fit our client's specific business risks.  It is a powerful tool to help our clients establish a risk-based due diligence program. 

The tool relies on established commercial, trade, bribery, and other risk factors as well as our own internally developed entity specific questions to assign a risk score using our proprietary scoring methodology.  The third-party is then assigned a Low, Moderate, or High risk designation.

Due Diligence Reports

Our due diligence reports help you assess the suitability of a potential third-party in your sales or supply channel by screening against all major restricted party lists issued by governments around the world and by conducting local language online adverse media key word searches, litigation searches, and others.  Click here to learn more.
