The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) requires U.S. financial institutions to assist government agencies in detecting and preventing money laundering. It mandates reporting and record-keeping requirements for certain financial transactions. For procurement and supply chain professionals, understanding BSA is essential to managing compliance and anti-money laundering (AML) risks. Compliance with BSA supports the detection of illicit activities, enhances financial transparency, and protects the integrity of the financial system.
