In this webinar, kindly sponsored by Control Risks, our panellists will share their expertise on various procurement related matters, and how best to deal with ethical failures when these arise.
Without adequate controls in place, supply chain departments run a risk of harbouring fraudulent activity either as a result of the failure of systems, processes and procedures, or as a result of a failure in the governance and oversight of the division, and sometimes of the organisation as a whole. In recent times, the “state-capture” inquiry in South Africa has highlighted shortfalls due to the lack of oversight in various supply chain or procurement departments within various organisations.
Our panellists will offer their views on policies and procedures that are effective in managing the procurement processes and will talk you through the conduct of supply chain related investigations. The ACI looks forward to presenting this event sponsored by Control Risks, and to offering participants support with challenges they may be facing within their supply chains
