Due Diligence

Due Diligence

Low Risk

Our low risk due diligence solutions are designed to help companies reduce their risk exposure across their broader third party network.

Medium Risk

For medium-high risk relationships, TRACE offers comprehensive due diligence options that are based on robust benchmarking and enable organizations to meet increased regulatory expectations.

High Risk

For higher risk relationships or relationships for which significant red flags have already been identified, our intensive, on-site investigations, conducted by a senior TRACE attorney, offer the most comprehensive review.

Global Supply Chain

One of the major compliance challenges faced by global organizations today is managing third party risk across the global supply chain. Anti-bribery due diligence has become a regulatory expectation under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), U.K. Bribery Act and other anti-bribery legislation. The TRACE suite of due diligence solutions offers organizations a sustainable and defensible approach to developing a more efficient workflow for screening third parties.

Risk Assessment Portal

Our online third party risk assessment platform makes it easy for organizations to collect and assess third party risk information through multilingual standard or customized questionnaires. The software integrates seamlessly with TRACE risk-based due diligence solutions, allowing users to designate risk tiers and initiate due diligence automatically upon completion of the assessment.

Upon completion of the risk sorting process, third party risk scores are assigned and high risk relationships are identified to help companies efficiently allocate limited compliance resources. An administrative dashboard enables users to monitor and manage the risk assessment process and due diligence in real-time.

TRACE due diligence solutions are innovative, cost-effective and based on robust benchmarking. With in-house capabilities in over 30 languages, a worldwide network of partner law firms that can provide on-the-ground assistance and nearly two decades of anti-bribery expertise, TRACE offers superior quality and competitive pricing.
