We're doing something similar. One of the business units have vendor software, but we have access to the database. Since the software only has some user validation, some of the records are considered wrong and they ask us to write reports to validate the data; so they can find the records that are incomplete. The reports can be nasty and take a lot of time, but job security is job security.
