Leadership Accountable for Managing Outsourcing Risks

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) outsourcing guidelines specify the outsourcing risk management practices expected of institutions under their supervision. The Board of Directors and senior management are ultimately responsible for managing activities conducted through third-party relationships. They should not engage in any relationship where the financial institution’s internal control, business conduct or reputation can be compromised. Institutions should have a framework for systematic risk evaluation of the work to be outsourced, the service provider and the relationship. The MAS guidelines specify the types of information to include in due diligence as well as the structure for effective monitoring and control of outsourcing risks.
