We outsource the periodic (and sometimes initial) reviews for all of our Critical and some of our Significant vendors each year to the company we use for our ERM Suite, (which includes Vendor Management). They collect and review documentation from the vendors, then provide us with a summary of their review, It covers 11 different areas (Business, Financial, Legal, Compliance, IS, Cloud Computing, Operations, Dependencies, HR, Reputation and Business Continuity).
We then review their summary, then meet with them and answer a set of Risk Assessment questions to determine if the vendor is a low, medium or high risk.
We are very happy with the service. Especially, because critical vendors can be complicated.

Does anyone currently outsource their third-party program or pieces of it- like initial and/or annual due diligence reviews? If so, who do you use and what other considerations do we need to think about? How do you confirm their their review is correct/acceptable to your risk level? what do they review? How do they summarize/provide info back?
