Vendor Risk & Internal Controls

Your organization depends on vendors to function. Big or small, national or local, all vendors present a common risk: They do business outside your organization, so there is a basic lack of control. Leveraging your vendor data will help your organization identify fraudulent vendors, simplify vendor master file management, and optimize process performance by eliminating errors and closing information gaps.

Understand Risks with Continuous Audit Analytics

Enterprise Resource Planning systems capture massive amounts of data within your municipality in real time. Automating your ERP data (e.g. data analytics) will allow you to quickly identify and understand risks occurring in your organization and use it to make changes and adjustments for an optimized process and improved performance.

Data analytics are written to track transactions as they move through the ERP workflow. Each analytic is asking a question of transaction. If the transaction meets the criteria, the analytic will flag the transaction. A single transaction could be flagged by multiple analytics.
