  • Understanding the entire process of the proposed transaction to follow the money and goods to the consumer
  • Determining what the business rationale is for onboarding the proposed third-party and what service it will provide on your company's behalf
  • Analyzing both internal and external personnel to ensure there is no connection that could be perceived as a kickback
  • Identifying if the proposed third-party will enlist the help of any other entity in order to complete the transaction on behalf of your company

The conference will be held March 25-26 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
