Key Concepts of Supply Chain Risk Management

Organizations are always at risk for losses through cost volatility, supply disruption, non-compliance fines, and safety incidents that cause damage to their brand and reputation. Knowing what’s at stake is the first step to understanding, measuring, and managing risk in your supply chain.

Avetta’s supply chain risk management software helps you identify supply chain risk, document risk factors, and manage risk. For example, do your suppliers have the proper insurance? What is their record for safety, sustainability, and quality assurance?

Identifying supply chain risk might be split between several departments, such as operations, procurement, risk management, health and safety, and compliance. Our supply chain risk management solutions give you a central repository for certificates of insurance, audit reports, safety records, and records documenting the qualifications and certifications of your suppliers and their employees.

Among the highest priorities for companies across all industries, safety concerns are often magnified in chemical, oil, and gas, construction, and manufacturing. Workplace accidents can jeopardize contracts, result in fines, and cause significant damage to a company's reputation.

Quality Control

Do your vendors and suppliers meet your standards for quality and consistency? Customers are quick to react when they perceive a drop in quality; and, even the smallest product issues can be difficult to recover from.

Any disruption to the supply chain due to financial challenges has the potential to impact business continuity and, ultimately, your bottom line. Taking a proactive approach to understanding supplier financial strength can prevent disruption and unnecessary costs.

Are your contractors insured? Do they have the right type of insurance, the right limits? Knowing this information will help you to manage insurance risk and avoid potentially costly litigation.

Damage to a company's brand or reputation can be long-lasting, extremely costly, and sometimes unrecoverable. Committing to a supply chain risk management software strategy can not only prevent brand damage but can also serve to foster new partnerships with organizations that share like values.

It's no longer enough to assess risk within the traditional construct of a supply chain. Organizations must look beyond and consider environmental impacts and social responsibility, including adherence to labor laws and sustainable practices.

Mitigating Risk in the Supply Chain

Effective supply chain risk management methods start with the procurement process and are dependent on having an effective methodology for evaluation. Part of Avetta’s supply chain risk management process is having a central repository where all departments dealing with the supply chain can deposit their reports, certificates of insurance, and other documents—and see the documents from other departments. When managing contractor and supplier relationships, loss control or risk mitigation is most effective when you can Communicate, Evaluate, Select, and Monitor:

Evaluate Select Communicate Monitor


Communicate expectations. Before you award the contract, ensure that you detail safety expectations in your contract with the supplier or contractor in mind.


Evaluate progress. Use objective criteria and both leading and lagging indicators, like Experience Modification Rate (EMR) and Total Recordable Incident Rates (TRIR) to determine how the contractor’s performance is measuring up to stated expectations.


Select contractors based on qualification standards. Once you have established the criteria against which contractors will be evaluated, be clear that all elements of qualification will be weighted and that price is not the only factor on which they will be judged.


Monitor contractors using a real-time database. Enforce company-wide standards by keeping a database of all contractors in a regularly updated format.
