The Audit Portal is a new digital environment for all SBP Certificate Holders and accredited Certification Bodies providing access to all SBP audit and certificate-related information, fill in SBP audit reports and Supply Base Reports. The Portal replaces the old Word templates and pdf reports with a digitalised system to complete audit templates in a much more efficient and smarter way. The Portal also enables SBP to monitor and evaluate trends, impacts and risk areas, which will help to improve the SBP scheme.
The Audit Portal is available for use by all SBP Certificate Holders and accredited Certification Bodies. Use of the portal is optional until January 2021, from when its use becomes mandatory.
The Audit Portal introduces a new way to generate and submit audit reports (Public Summary Report) and Supply Base Reports. Moving away from the old Word templates and pdf reports allows us to make use of digital tools and automation, which will improve data quality, standardise report content and at the same time make the process more efficient for users when it comes to completing the reports. The Audit Portal will also support SBP in developing a robust monitoring and evaluation system to monitor and report on our impacts and help us improve the certification scheme.
The Audit Portal will become mandatory from January 2021 for all Certificate Holders and Certification Bodies. We are encouraging all our Certificate Holders and Certification Bodies to start exploring the system. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get access now.
