Credit unions use a wide array of vendors to perform daily services. Managing vendor relationships is becoming more difficult and regulators are placing more emphasis on the security of member information and the potential risk of vendor nonperformance. Every credit union is now required to maintain a written vendor-management program. This webinar will thoroughly explain the elements of an effective vendor-management program, including risk assessment, due diligence when selecting vendors, contract review and structuring, vendor monitoring, and termination. It will also address your credit union’s potential liability for the vendor’s performance and the relevant accounting rules.
