Job description

Vendor Management should align with the IT Roadmap and Architecture landscape and determine with the different departments which Vendors will be qualified to work with DAF now and in the future.
To evaluate the vendors we need to do Risk Assessments. We have several departments that evaluate vendors on for example security, GDPR and financial sustainability. But there is no overall Risk assessment protocol to determine if a vendor is qualified for DAF. The vendor risk assessment is a very critical step in vetting and ongoing monitoring of DAF’s vendors. The assessment will give a better understanding of the risk posed by each one of DAF’s vendor relationships. Any third-party risk is also DAF’s risk. Common risks associated with third-party vendors range from everything to operational risk, to financial and reputational loss and compliance risk. 
The goal of the project is to come up with a Risk Assessment protocol which ensures DAF of working with qualified Vendors. In order to set up this protocol you’ll have to involve the right departments and write a procedure/process together. (f.e. Purchasing, Vendor Management, Quality, Security, Legal etc.)   
-       Thorough analysis of the current way of working
-       A future proof Vendor Risk Assessment protocol and process design for the above mentioned problem
