RFP/RFQ Services

Finding the best products and services at the best possible prices for your business can be a challenging and time-consuming endeavor.

It does, and FLANK can help, as it’s one of our core small business compliance services and solutions we offer. Looking for vendors that offer regulatory compliance services – that’s us!

But if you need additional services from other vendors, we can assist also, as most companies that have to perform multiple compliance assessments often have more than one vendor.  But it’s not just compliance services that require RFP/RFQ services. What about software vendors, managed security services providers, data centers, and more? FLANK can secure the right vendor at the right price for your business.

Regulatory Compliance Planning & Project Management

Audit time has come once again, but are you ready? Do you have the resources in place for proper planning and execution of your compliance requirements?

Let that be FLANK’s job. That’s right, we can manage your entire regulatory compliance needs from beginning to end, effectively becoming the go-to project manager you’ve always needed, but at a fraction of the cost of a full-time compliance employee.

We can perform almost anything audit related, such as the following (and remember, at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee):

  • Assessing, defining, and confirming audit scope.
  • Collecting materials and providing deliverables to auditors.
  • Reviewing draft audit reports and making necessary changes as required prior to final issuance.
  • Providing transparency, efficiency, and unbiased reporting to upper management on all compliance issues.

Regulatory Compliance Remediation/Internal Assessments

FLANK has years of experience helping businesses remediate internal control gaps and deficiencies, from policy writing to technical implementation on information systems, and more. It’s just another example of our small business compliance services and solutions we offer.
