Why Should You Attend:
Many Fortune 500 companies have recognized that suppliers aren't just important to the procurement department; and that they are often a key component of an entire organization's ability to generate value. And the ability to generate value is compromised when information about supplier performance is locked away in disparate systems or in employee's heads. The supplier management lifecycle focuses on ensuring that the value a supplier brings to an organization is not compromised. Additionally, the lifecycle promotes standards, consistency, and continuous monitoring throughout the process.
The supplier management lifecycle identifies key leverage points for accounts payable and procurement to team together throughout the supplier management process. The accounts payable and procurement teams have an incredible opportunity to share information, work more efficiently with the organization's suppliers, and establish a system to support smooth procurement, delivery, and payment processes. We’ll also provide ten best practices that summarize how the lifecycle can be embedded into the procure to pay (P2P) process to ensure good onboarding and supplier master controls.

Even with the intense attention to supplier management internal controls due to the impact of the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 and other regulatory compliance requirements, there are still situations in which contracts are established and invoices are paid to fictitious suppliers or suppliers on government watch lists.
How can a contract be established with a new supplier without any due diligence or validation? How is it possible that “legitimate” suppliers have a private mailbox at the local UPS Store, a private residence, or even a prison address? Or that invoices a few weeks apart with consecutive numbers both get paid? Or “invoices from a “supplier” whose address happens to match that of a company employee get paid?
