Client

A Fortune 50 global manufacturer of medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer goods

As part of their law department transformation, a Fortune 50 global manufacturer of medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer goods relied on our team of legal and internal audit experts to analyze their contracting processes and develop a strategic approach to mitigate risks.

Before implementing a global contract management system, our Client needed to reduce potential risks. They asked us to analyze their contracting process with third-party vendors and create a strategy to increase efficiencies and establish more robust internal controls.

What We Did

  • Evaluated our Client’s existing contracting systems and processes and conducted a current state assessment.
  • Performed a gap analysis for best practices.
  • Ensured the contracting process was in compliance with relevant laws and applicable company policies.
  • Presented recommendations to our Client’s Management Board Committee on ways to improve the existing process.

Impact

  • Helped mitigate potential liabilities and legal department concerns about IT’s implementation of the contract management system.
  • Avoided downtime for legal department personnel during system integration.
  • Enabled our Client to significantly reduce turn-around time for document execution.
  • Improved value of legal work and established trusted relationships with internal departments.
