CCG Catalyst negotiates the complete “contract” not just price, but the terms and service levels are equally important. None of these exist in a vacuum, nor can they be taken out of the context of the contract as a whole. CCG Catalyst provides a proven methodology that verifies and substantiates the facts, guides your institution through the truths and half- truths, and provides documentation that is appropriate and recommended for submittal to the Board of Directors, auditors, and regulators. Regulators are holding the Board of Directors and Executive Management responsible for identifying, managing and controlling the risks and performance of third party providers.
“An institution’s board of directors and senior management are ultimately responsible for managing activities conducted through third-party relationships, and identifying and controlling the risks arising from such relationships, to the same extent as if the activity were handled within the institution.” FFEIC-FIL-44-2008
