Vendor Management

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 help get issues worked out with your business needs in mind.

Mature Vendor Management Project

The project will introduce a policy around vendor use and a more robust process and program for managing vendors through the OIT Vendor Management Office.

Project Goals

  • Raise awareness of OIT’s Vendor Management Office 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.
