Visual Compliance incorporated in Vendor Maintenance
Vendor Maintenance has incorporated the use of Visual Compliance as part of the vendor review process. This step is now taken for all New, Reactivation and Update types of Vendor Maintenance requests.
Visual Compliance software allows subscribed users to submit names to be screened automatically against mandatory Restricted and Denied Parties lists to ensure compliance with federal export control regulations and national/international areas of concern.
Checking Visual Compliance prior to creating or updating a vendor in our database helps protect the university by ruling out any conflicts of interest, helps organizations fulfill their screening requirements and prevent business dealings with parties (individuals and organizations) deemed as blocked, restricted, or denied by Governments, world organizations and law enforcement agencies.
Common impacts to your vendor maintenance requests may include delays in seeking out additional information from the original requester (such as middle initial for an Individual request). Please provide all requested information to help prevent this. If there is a conflict, the request is escalated to OSP Export Control for further evaluation- this can cause an additional delay.
