Episode 9: Vendor Validations Using the Data on Invoices, Banking Forms, Contracts and Vendor Emails

Today’s podcast is a follow-up to my blog post “7 Validations Using the Data from the IRS W-9 Form”.  I will discuss validations that are recommended for the vendor data on Invoices, Banking Forms/Letterhead, Contracts/SOWs, and Emails.  At the end I will share with you how you can get your own free Vendor Validation Reference list with resource links that you can share with your team and put up in your office or cubicle as a quick reference.
