Imagine a world where...
major vendors contracted with OIT have been vetted and risks assessed. If those vendors are providing services to your agency, you have a partner in OIT’s Vendor Management Office to work through issues with your business needs in mind.
Mature Vendor Management Project
The Mature Vendor Management project will introduce a policy around vendor use and a more robust process and program for managing vendors through the OIT Vendor Management Office (VMO), a single point of contact for all post-contract, vendor-related relationship, risk, and performance management at OIT.
The project strives to:
Raise awareness of OIT’s VMO and increase use of its services.
Provide vendor feedback and risk assessments to agencies if requested for the vendors that are contracted through OIT.
Increase communication and collaboration with agencies when it comes to best practices for vendor management.
