Supplier Affiliation with the Contracting Entity’s Management
This involves a conflict of interest. A supplier might be explicitly affiliated (through ownership or leadership) with the individuals who are responsible for making procurement decisions on behalf of the client. For instance, the supplier might be owned by a close relative of the the Contracting Entity. Affiliation can also be indirect. For example, the supplier’s manager might be a former classmate, colleague, or otherwise professionally acquainted with the the Contracting Entity’s manager.
To identify such risks, it’s necessary to collect data on the management of the the Contracting Entity’s company and conduct an expert analysis to identify any possible affiliations with supplier staff.
