LGA Gets a Helping Hand with High-Priority Projects

LGA has partnered with Vendor Centric since 2018. The initial engagement was to establish an enterprise-wide vendor management program, enabling them to meet tight regulatory deadlines. Since then, Vendor Centric has helped LGA fill skill gaps and get a number of special projects across the finish line including targeted risk assessments, policy and procedure updates, and ongoing technology enhancements. Recently, we helped develop a Vendor Management Hub, an online platform where employees can access how-to guides, micro-learning videos, FAQs, and process visuals to answer everyday vendor management questions.

Partnering with Vendor Centric has provided LGA with a trusted partner for the long haul, empowering them to continually drive value from their ecosystem of vendors.
