REDACT is the fifth step towards actionable intelligence
REDACT is the fifth key step in the process of
transforming your spend and vendor data into actionable
intelligence that is complete, accurate and fit-for-purpose.
Minimizing the risk of breaching data protection and privacy
To minimize the risk of inadvertent breach of data protection
and privacy laws, the cleansed and standardized raw data is
further processed to identify payments made to individuals (for
example foster carers and vulnerable adults in local government) or
where national security, personal security or foreign relations
might be compromised.
Ensuring bone-fide payments are not obscured
Our redaction algorithms are sophisticated and leverage unique
reference databases and rule-sets designed to ensure that bone-fide
payments are not inadvertently obscured. Once a redaction candidate
has been identified and validated by a data analyst, any
identifying information is overwritten to ensure that the recipient
of the payment cannot be identified.
"The spend analysis was something that was sorely needed at Tampa. Spikes Cavell and the Observatory are going to help us streamline in a lot of areas."
