Integrity Diligence

Understanding who you conduct business with has become more than just good business practice — it is smart compliance. Multinational organizations are rapidly adjusting to enforcement standards that hold companies responsible for the actions of their business partners and vendors, and require effective third-party due diligence.

EY Integrity Diligence helps clients design, implement and maintain effective third-party diligence systems on a global scale. Our multidisciplinary teams work internationally to develop in-depth research and analysis on the background and reputation of third parties, joint venture partners or acquisition targets, supporting better-informed decision making across your business. We combine comprehensive analysis of publically available data with the insights of colleagues across our global Forensics network.

Our services:

  • Integrity Diligence: EY_ID

We have developed a proprietary technology platform — EY_ID — to help our clients address the challenges of a comprehensive and consistent integrity diligence process.

EY_ID is a secure, end-to-end technology solution to connect companies, third parties and service providers seamlessly on a single web-based platform. It acts as an automated focal point to collect, review, assess and archive the information required for a robust Know Your Third Party program.
The result is a centrally managed and globally accessible platform designed to improve standardization, transparency and accountability throughout the third-party life cycle.

EY_ID is highly customizable with a tailored workflow. It offers advanced dashboards with visual data analytics and search functionality. Key features include:

  • An automated risk scoring engine driven by key third-party diligence results
  • Single-entry and bulk upload screening of third-party data
  • Customized third-party questionnaires and certifications
  • Auditable repository third-party records, diligence reports and approval
