Program Description

Outside vendors are an essential element of credit union operations and their contracts are a regular part of our life. But too often contracts are signed without a full review or understanding of any terms beyond price and delivery date. Unfortunately, what you don’t know can hurt you. Face it, the contract that the vendor provides is basically their "wish list" of terms and conditions.

Worse yet, it was drafted by THEIR attorney with the sole purpose of locking you into their deal. This session is designed to educate you on the basics of effective contract negotiation, review and management. Better yet, David Reed is a former Vice President and General Counsel of a Credit Union and has the inside scoop on maximizing vendor relationships and contract management systems.

This session will cover:

  • The essential elements of vendor due diligence
  • Conducting a credit union vendor inventory and analysis
  • Basic contract drafting tips – From term of contract to confidentiality to level of service
  • What should be negotiated and how
  • Maximizing the return on outsourced relationships
  • Managing compliance risks – Fair Lending to Credit Reports
  • Leveraging regulatory guidance

Program Length: 87 Minutes
