CAMPAIGN: Conflict Minerals

CONTENT: Press Release

November 15, 2012 /3BL Media/ - Companies have limited options to meet the requirements of Dodd-Frank Section 1502. Most companies don’t have human or capital resources to build an internal force to implement the supplier tracing, data collection and reporting required in the supplier due diligence process. To date, companies have had two options: 1) hire consultants on an hourly basis to collect supplier data, or 2) purchase 'do-it-yourself' software. The elephant in the room? Neither of these options includes sufficient resources to manage and verify the data.
