Welcome » IT Booklets » Supervision of Technology Service Providers (TSP) » Risk-Based Supervision » Frequency of Examinations
As part of the supervision of a TSP, examiners can conduct
interim supervisory reviews or unscheduled site or service
examinations for areas of evolving supervisory interest or concern.
The number and frequency of interim supervisory reviews conducted
during an examination cycle are based on the level of risk
identified by the CPC team. All examined TSPs must receive at least
one interim supervisory review during each examination cycle.
Examinations are conducted jointly according to schedules agreed
upon by the participating Agencies. When joint examinations cannot
be scheduled, one or more Agencies may be designated to perform the
examination on behalf of all interested Agencies. If, however, the
TSP's overall condition is determined to be less than satisfactory,
the Agencies make a special effort to ensure subsequent
examinations are conducted on a joint basis until the TSP's overall
condition is satisfactory.
