Certified Regulatory Vendor Manager Program

Post Walt Lyons

On October 30, 2013, the OCC issued updated guidance for national banks and federal savings associations on assessing and managing risks associated with third-party relationships. On December 5, 2013, the Federal Reserve issued similar guidance for institutions it supervises. This increased regulatory focus on third-party oversight has created a growing demand for knowledgeable professionals with specialized expertise in building and managing compliant Vendor Management Programs.

The VBA has partnered with RISC Associates to provide a Certified Regulatory Vendor Program Manager (CRVPM) training program to our member banks. The (CRVPM) course provides bankers with the regulatory knowledge, methodology and best practices to build and manage a compliant third-party oversight program that meets FFIEC Guidance and GLBA 501(b) requirements. Combining both audio and video, this self-paced online course will help prepare those tasked with vendor management for implementing and managing a compliant program as well as enhancing existing programs and preparing for exams and audits. Completion of the course certifies the user as a Certified Regulatory Vendor Program Manager.
