• Contract Compliance

Cutting through volume and complexity.

BDO’s Contract Compliance services are designed to serve virtually any company that engages vendors, suppliers, franchisees, and licensees through contractual agreements. Our dedicated professionals are well-versed in the interpretation and analysis of contract provisions, with credentials based on broad industry knowledge and experience. We speak the language unique to certain sectors, including oil and gas, financial services, the motion picture industry, television, video, licensed merchandise, music, software, construction, and franchising.
BDO offers the following services to meet the specific needs of our clients:
  • Vendor audits (Large scale programs and individual audits)
  • Royalty examinations
  • Franchise audits
  • Examinations of revenue-sharing arrangements
  • Construction audits
  • Joint Interest audits
  • Merchandise licensing examinations
  • Pre-execution contract review
Using a collaborative approach, our team offers insight into the applicable provisions of the underlying contracts, identifying vital documentation during all of our contract compliance engagements. We tailor our services to the specifics of each contract and the individual situation of each of the contracted parties, collaborating effectively and efficiently to add value for our clients.
We comb through the details to identify instances when clients have overpaid – typically recovering funds that are at least 2-3% of the contract’s total value – and hold contractual parties accountable when they fail to meet performance requirements. In cases where contracts present enormous volume and complexity, our professionals leverage deep experience and broad resources in data analytics. In many cases, our teams are able to automate the process in order to find the required information quickly and efficiently.
