ACUA Webinar - Reigning in Third Party Risk                  Registration is Open

Speaker: Mark Bednarz from O'Connor Daives

Date: October 14, 2015

Time: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.  EST

Today more colleges and universities are using outsourced providers to reduce costs, improve operations and generate new revenue sources. Each new relationship can expose institutions to a wide range of risks. Developing an effective third party management program is a mainstay of cost management, operational efficiency, and monitoring risk.


Attendees will have a greater understanding of third party risk and how outsourced providers can negatively impact colleges and universities. The course will also provide suggestions on how to incorporate third party relationships into your internal audit risk assessment as well as value-added recommendations for enhancing a third party management program so it positively impacts your institution.
