Part 5: Inter-dependencies

Part 5: Inter-dependencies

Business Function and Function Code (Col 2 & 3)

Name of Business Unit or Vendor/Supplier/Outsource Partner (Col 4)

  • This Dept/Unit/Vendor/Supplier/Partner is inter-dependent on the Business Function.
  • Note (1): There should be a one-to-one relationship between every source and target Dept/BU with the exception of: external agencies e.g. Central Bank, government ministries and agencies, common organizational support units e.g. IT, Human Resource, Finance.

Type of Dependency (Col 5 & 6)

Internal/ External

  • This column details what type of relationship is shared between the Business Function and the Business Unit/Vendor/Supplier/Partner. There are 3 possible dependencies:
  • Upstream
  • Downstream
  • Mutual dependency
  • Notes (2): If the Source Dept/Unit and the Target Dept/Unit are the same department/unit, then, there may be a need to identify the sub-unit level e.g. Finance-Account Payable and Finance Account-Receivables. Be caution that this is usually not needed except for special cases.
