Singapore – Feedback To MAS Consultation Papers On Outsourcing.

3 December, 2014



On 30 September 2014, the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) organised a dialog session for financial institutions and vendor organisations to discuss and identify common key feedback points on the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) proposals to raise the outsourcing risk management practice standards of financial institutions. The dialog session was led by ATMD Bird & Bird.

Following the dialog session, ATMD Bird & Bird and SCCA have jointly made submissions to MAS setting out the feedback points which were raised and discussed at the session for MAS’s informational and discussion purposes.

Although the proposed Guidelines and Notice on Outsourcing apply across all types of outsourcing and is not limited to IT outsourcing, the submissions discuss MAS’s proposals in the context of technology outsourcing, particularly in the context of shared services and cloud computing services, to illustrate some of the concerns of both financial institutions and their service providers.
