A Good Compliance Program includes a ROI.

We can show you wht to spend for a compliance budget, plus help you measure real-world ROI.

Off-Site, Remote Solutions Improve Compliance ROI

Our off-site compliance minimizes cost and maximizes resources. Before we take on a project, we can provide a simple, one-page document that sets forth a proposed compliance budget and a projected Return on Investment, including a value for avoiding a regulatory train wreck. After all, if you don’t have a clear value proposition, you can’t completely manage the program.

Sound good to you? Here’s how to get the ball rolling:

  1. Call to discuss your needs and to obtain our Certificate of Non-Disclosure and Privacy Agreement.
  2. If we’re only spit-balling, than skip Step 3. We don’t charge for conferences or to share our experience.
  3. Review our Fee Proposal. If it is acceptable, go to next step. NOTE: depending upon the circumstances, not all information request may be necessary. The rule of thumb: if you’re paying us, we want as much information as possible. If we’re just talking, then less information may be forthcoming.
  4. Provide some information for our discussion session. Some, all or none of the below maybe appropriate.
    • Summarize examination comments (positive and negative) along with examiner recommendations and send those to us. Include in your summary both the written comments as well as any oral communication that took place. NOTE: we may not need to see copies of the actual comments;  we can always review with a GoToMeeting session.
    • Gather up your current policy and procedures along with any documents you use to open accounts or perform the work. You can scan and email to our secure portal or fax them to us.
    • Gather your current reports you are using now to manage compliance.
    • Summarize your current monitoring efforts; provide copies of reports used.
  5. We’ll send you a checklist you can use to help us understand the specifics of how you operate this part of the bank and how you are managing the compliance piece.
  6. We’ll send you the “prelim” policy and procedure in a MS WORD format to review and revise.
  7. We’ll  schedule a follow-up phone conference to review your changes
  8. We’ll send the revised Policy and Procedure
  9. You provide credit card for our billing. (Payment by ACH and/or check is also acceptable.)

We lost two key compliance people inside of 6 weeks. Unfortunate MAPS was able to pick up the slack and keep our routines going, We also had them in to present (via a webinar) to our Board. That was an eye-opening experience for them. We’re still getting good feedback almost three months later.
