Supply Chain Verification Projects: What are supply chain verification projects?

Supply chain verification projects are national projects designed to correctly manage the audit of a supply chain where the traders in the supply chain are located in a number of geographical locations.

A designated project manager is responsible for managing a specific project. In particular, the project manager will:

  • Identify and establish the extent of the audit, identifying businesses for the initial audit, key stakeholders etc.
  • Manage and ensure communication and co-ordinated effort
  • Manage the project and overall audit, including the production of necessary project documentation
  • Be directly responsible for reporting and planning each stage of the audit and reporting the outcome of the audit to the Senior responsible officer (normally at Grade 7 [G7]), key stakeholders, other stakeholders and regional co-ordinators
  • Be a single point of contact between the project and the CLO and ACCT
  • Estimate resources
  • Co-ordinate verification issues internally for the project
