PwC provides an Open Source Software compliance assessment, based on the latest OpenChain specification resulting in an internationally recognized PwC audit report, a certification that verifies OSS compliance.
Thanks to enhanced PwC tool-support, the execution of the whole engagement is lean and transparent to all stakeholders, regardless of the number of stakeholders involved, their location or the number of assessments to be performed. At any stage of the assessment the assessed organisation and the commissioning company could gain insights into the status, open items, and any potential issues.
During our initial kick-off meeting we clarified the scope and approach of the assessment and gained an initial and general understanding of the Open Source Software management and compliance processes. Subsequently we setup the PwC OSS assessment tool and started reviewing and analysing the OSS compliance verification materials as soon as provided. Questions and clarifications were processed through our tool; where sensible and required we performed direct interviews regarding the compliance artefacts.
- Professional PwC OSS tooling for transparent, lean, efficient and effective OSS assessment
- PwC provides trust, which allows you to reduce the depth and breadth of review and compliance processes for incoming software, therefore reducing costs, efforts and time delay for organisations sourcing software development from external suppliers
- Internationally recognized, independent and trustworthy report on suppliers’ OSS compliance, making multiple individual assessments obsolete, hence reducing costs and providing a competitive advantage in tender processes
