I always feel as though I need to start my posts with "settle a bet...."

Are our AMCs vendors? We utilize them to engage the appraiser, receive/deliver the report, review the report and pay the appraiser.

I say vendor, but I appear to be the only one. Critical vendor, no, but vendor.

True! I say vendor; everyone with me gets cookies. Flawed system suggested BY the auditor.

You may find it helpful in attempting to change the language in your shop from 'vendor' to 'third party' to get others thinking more broadly. While I tend to often be at loggerheads with this over the lead of our 'Vendor' management committee (he heads up IT and deals with 'vendors'), it gets other department personal think a little further about their relationships, and ends up improving their buy in in completing (or at least attempting) required due diligence.
