Not sure what the term "costly" means - it is quite the wide open field.
We handle FSVP consulting and it includes a site visit to conduct a full audit on documentation and facility, regardless of whether the supplier has a certification in place and is willing to provide a copy of their most recent 2nd or 3rd party audit.
If we had to break it down it is the audit, the auditor, travel and travel related expenses that makes up the bulk of the service - thus the "costly" part, otherwise I guess it is less costly.
Can you pinpoint what you mean by costly?
