Fiduciary Controls Framework
Automating the Fiduciary Role
Federal law establishes strict standards for organizations that sponsor ERISA qualified retirement plans. The manual work involved in complying with ERISA fiduciary duty is a cost drain on most human resource departments. Many CFOs and human resource executives have sought ways to cut that cost.
At the same time, recent Department of Labor inspection audits are noting various deficiencies that are present in a large number of retirement plans, regardless of size. The most serious deficiency is the lack of evidence of compliance with ERISA’s process standard, especially in the areas of fiduciary controls, vendor management, and payroll reconciliation.
Fix it with Automation
Current regulatory trends and a growing number of class action lawsuits place a premium on having the best governance, risk management, and compliance (“GRC”) system. Automation can dramatically increase cost efficiencies and remove the guess work about ERISA’s fiduciary rules, with additional fringe benefits including:
- Reduced workload on human resources personnel;
- Streamlined annual CPA audit process;
- Improved workflows;
- Peace of mind.
