In-House Perspectives on Third-Party Due Diligence: Red Flags and Follow-Up (Part Three of Three)

Conducting third-party due diligence is only useful if the exercise leads to the effective identification and mitigation of corruption risk. The Anti-Corruption Report recently spoke with representatives from a wide variety of companies, including BDP International, Public Interest Registry and TE Connectivity, and identified seven red flags they look for when vetting third parties and what they do when they find them.

The first article in this three-part series discussed how companies can right-size their diligence programs and provided strategies for ensuring that those programs are appropriately risk-based.
