He can be reached at [email protected] Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago One area that is too often neglected when it comes to the vendor due diligence process is the prospective partner’s document signing protocols. There are a number of functions that require third party partners to produce signatures on behalf of their clients. When performing this type of work, accuracy and adherence to client requirements are essential. To deliver that, the firm must have a well-designed and compliant system.The first element of such a system is a well-trained staff. Everyone associated with the process must have very deep training on our industry, its practices, and compliance requirements. Compliance requires that every employee has full knowledge, familiarity, and integrity on each and every document the firm signs on behalf of a client. This knowledge should be imparted through detailed and monitored training, but that’s just the beginning.A well-trained staff will need the aid of efficient systems and technology in order to ensure that every document is signed correctly every time. Such a system of controls must include a signing authority database, frequent internal audits, and physical location controls that determine where employees are located throughout the facility.In regards to training, notaries should be required to attend document review training and document reviewer specialists should likewise be required to attend notary training as well. This cross-training will ensure that all employees, regardless of position, understand what has to happen to ensure compliance.Advanced database technology should be employed to hold detailed client records that will determine what documents company personnel can sign and under what circumstances. Power of attorney and corporate resolutions should also be held in this secure database.Physical location controls should be employed to determine where employees work, as well as their proximity to each other and to notaries. This will allow the company to orchestrate the workflow and ensures that no document that must be notarized can leave the area without being thoroughly completed.If it sounds like the vendor partner should build its company around signing controls instead of adding signing controls to an existing company, that’s correct. Any company who does not do this is not taking compliance seriously enough to mitigate the risks that face today’s financial servicing companies.An easy way to tell how well the company is doing is to ask about their compliance record with the nation’s County Recorder’s Offices. If more than a fraction of one percent of their documents are being returned for compliance errors, one can bet that firm is making other errors that will expose anyone who hires them to significant risk.Another excellent measure of the firm’s ability to meet the needs of its clients is to ask whether any of them are now adopting the partner’s document signing practices in their own companies. It happens.

BLOG: Governor Wolf’s Message on Memorial Day (VIDEO)

first_imgThe fundamental rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have been courageously protected by millions of Americans willing to give their lives so that others may be free.On the 148th observance of Memorial Day – once known as Decoration Day – we ask that Americans pause to give thanks for the brave men and women who died to preserve our freedom.More than 70,000 Americans from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have given the last full measure of devotion for this country since it first proclaimed itself an independent nation in 1776.Many of these patriots are interred with comrades in hallowed memorial grounds in America, Europe, and the Pacific. They lie in simple country plots, urban memorial parks, unmarked graves, and among friends and family.On Memorial Day, and every day, we thank them for their sacrifice and acknowledge our eternal debt to them. We pray that the devotion to patriotism and citizenship they displayed through service to this country will never be forgotten. Through their deeds, we have learned to appreciate the freedoms that are the legacy of their sacrifice.A new generation of men and women in uniform have faced, and continue to face, their own “great task remaining before us,” on the city streets and desert sands of Iraq and in the mountains of Afghanistan. The proud contingent who today wears America’s uniform is tied to all other veterans by the same ethic of service in the name of freedom.Today we gather to demonstrate our unity, remember our losses, and ask that all citizens of the commonwealth recognize our unwavering commitment to a future filled with opportunity, justice, and hope for all people.Today, I urge all Pennsylvanians to join with others across the United States to demonstrate our gratitude as we reflect on those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedom.

Street Sign Impales Corvette on I-95 in Broward

first_imgA multi-vehicle crash on I-95 in Broward County sent a street sign flying into a Corvette and a woman to the hospital earlier this week.According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, as the driver of the Corvette was going north and approaching the Pembroke Road exit in Hallandale Beach.The driver, who identified himself only as Malcolm,” says, “I didn’t even see it. It just happened really fast. When I was coming onto the interstate, the sign went airborne. I guess it was already airborne. I didn’t even know.”Investigators believe the sign, which warns drivers to merge, instead ended up as debris on the highway at some point before the crash. When another car hit the sign, it flew up and sliced through the back windshield of the Corvette, before landing on the back seat.At least four vehicles were involved in the crash, officials say.The driver of an SUV involved in the incident was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood for examination due to shaken nerves from the crash.last_img read more
