Audit Recovery for Leading Nationwide Retailer

Key audit recovery of $3.3 Million for Fortune 100 Retail Corporation


Our client is in a long-term relationship with an indirect commodity distributor; with various agreements over several spend categories. They have generated RFPs and renewed contracts but were not aware of several key pricing clauses that adversely affected their agreements and were the root cause for contract compliance issues.
