Due to the recent focus on payment processing industry by several federal agencies including the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FDIC, VPCS has developed a practice to assist lenders and Third Party Payment Providers (TPPP) in complying with new guidance around payment processing. We focus on not only actual processing of payments but on how TPPP can improve their overall compliance capabilities by reviewing additional areas of their client’s business.

We assist TPPP, financial institutions and lenders by performing the following services:

  • Enhancing required due diligence qualifications for TPPP clients
  • Assisting TPPP in reviewing due diligence items and prequalifying lender applications
  • Assist TPPP in performing quarterly compliance reviews of lender clients
  • Ensure adherence to NACHA rules, OLA best practices and other regulatory guidance
  • Perform audits of TPPP and certain TPPP clients
  • Review posting of customer payments to ensure adherence to the consumer loan agreement

We assist ODFI’s (Originating Depository Financial Institution) with instituting a comprehensive end to end compliance program:

  • Underwriting guidelines for ODFI
  • Development of policies and procedures for ODFI
  • Board reporting templates
  • Triggers for client audits based on severity of violation
