Anti-Bribery, Corruption (ABAC) & Ethics Assessment

Assess and continuously monitor your supply chain for ethical risks

As supply chains become increasingly global, organizations must ensure that their third parties’ business practices align with laws against bribery, corruption and ethical violations. The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act are two notable examples that require organizations to provide regular disclosures of violations.

The problem is, most third-party risk management approaches only evaluate anti-bribery and corruption (ABAC) and ethical policies when a new supplier is onboarded, without considering the fact that ethical risks can surface at any time.

The Prevalent Third-Party Risk Management Platform includes specific ABAC and ethics assessments and features built-in integration with continuous reputational, compliance and corruption insights. As a result, you gain a closed-loop pre- and post-contract view of vendor ABAC practices.

Key Benefits

  • Gain visibility into corruption risks – before and during the lifetime of the contract

  • Get ahead of potential business disruptions by leveraging continuous, repeatable supplier reputation intelligence

  • Automate assessments with ABAC and ethics questionnaires that are backed by validation from continuous, real-world risk monitoring

  • Speed ABAC and ethics disclosure reporting with built-in templates
