Upon identification of risks identified with a supplier, the role provides expertise to support mitigation and resolution solutions with Abbott and supplier representatives. During inspections, the role may be required to present evidence of the supplier management process to inspectors or ensure audit backroom staff have the necessary evidence and any other materials required for Abbott to respond effectively to requests.
