Implemented in January 2014, the CFPB Mortgage Servicing Standards provided a number of major changes including systems enhancements, workflow changes, more stringent documentationrequirements and new disclosures.

Large and Small: Practical Guidance for Navigating Third Party Vendor Management
Since the issuance of its April 2012 Bulletin on supervision of third party service providers, financial institutions and non-depository institutions have struggled to establish, implement, and maintain vendor management programs, while continuing to attend to their other operational and compliance challenges.
The panel will discuss the full scope of the vendor management process, including: (1) how to develop an effective program; (2) implementation challenges relating to the effective use of a vendor management program, including internal challenges as well as difficulties experienced with third parties; and (3) maintenance of an effective process while minimizing the number of resources expended to ensure that your company has the necessary safeguards.
The panelists will share their insight into expectations from various regulatory agencies in the area of vendor risk management with the aim of the panel to arm attendees with the appropriate tools to develop or shore up and strengthen their existing process. The panel also will discuss how to minimize risk to institutions, including how to evaluate which third parties require more in-depth review and how to address when action must be taken against third parties, including termination of relationships.
