Liaise :

The verb “liaise,” meaning to act as a liaison (intermediary between one group and another), has been around in military contexts since early in the 20th century; but recently it has broken out into more general use, especially in business, where it bothers a lot of people.

Although dictionaries generally consider it standard English, you may want to avoid it around people irritated by business jargon.
