Comprehensive Compliance and Ethics Program Assessment

Spark Compliance Consulting helps you energize and optimize your existing compliance and ethics program in order to properly mitigate risk, withstand regulatory scrutiny, and foster an ethical culture that drives business success.  With the recent publishing of the Department of Justice’s Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs Guidance Document , it’s more critical than ever to be able to show your commitment to having an effective, well-implemented compliance program. (See our guidance on this important development HERE)

Spark Compliance Consulting’s Comprehensive Compliance Program Assessment gives a clear picture of where your compliance and ethics program is excelling, and where it has opportunity for improvement.  Practical, pro-business recommendations are provided so that you can optimize and right-size your program to meet best practices and regulator expectations, while still working with the business in a pragmatic way. 

The secret sauce: Our Proprietary CCEPA Review Methodology

Your program is global, so you need to know how you’re evaluated on a global scale.  Our proprietary Comprehensive Compliance and Ethics Program Assessment (CCEPA) methodology tests the program using multiple inputs in order to obtain a view from inside the compliance department and out.  Your program will be evaluated and measured against criteria informed by and consistence with:

Comprehensive Compliance and Ethics Program Assessment: CCEPA Methodology

Our Comprehensive Program Assessment utilizes Spark’s proprietary CCEPA Methodology to test the program using multiple inputs in order to obtain a 360° view from inside the department and out.  CCEPA Methodology uses seven specific inputs to evaluate the program.  We take  a comprehensive view of the compliance and ethics program in order to properly assess the efficacy of the program.  We look at documents and intentions, as well as execution in order to ensure that the program is operating as effectively as possible. 

A Spark Compliance Consulting CCEPA-based report provides more than just an overview of the compliance program against the seven elements of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.  It takes the information provided by the inputs and evaluates it to provide effective commendations, opportunities for improvement and recommendations in 20 specific areas. These include:

Specialized, Pragmatic, Pro-Business Recommendations

Our carefully crafted list of recommendations to make the compliance program even stronger in the future.  We ground our recommendations in practices which can be implemented in a pro-business and pragmatic way, so that compliance can partner with the business, instead of working against it.

Spark Compliance made a real difference and come highly recommended! Not the typical generic consultant speak, but pragmatic and targeted advice and most of all a joy to work with!
