KirkpatrickPrice is Chosen by DBA International to Perform Debt Buyer Certification Audits

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- KirkpatrickPrice announced today that they have been selected by the DBA International Certification Council as an "Approved" Independent Third Party Auditing Firm for the performance of Compliance Audits. KirkpatrickPrice was among the first four firms chosen to conduct these audits. Jessie Skibbe, Director of Compliance at KirkpatrickPrice, has earned the designation of Certified Receivables Compliance Professional (CRCP) after completing the educational requirements of DBA International's Debt Buyer Certification Program.

The DBA International Debt Buyer Certification Program consists of a company-based designation and an individual-based designation for debt buyers who meet prescribed continuing education and background criteria.

Company certifications are granted to companies who comply with 19 uniform standards based on industry best practices. These standards address account documentation, chain of title, consumer complaint and dispute resolution, statute of limitation compliance, vendor management, credit bureau reporting, resale, and other relevant operational procedures. Individual certifications will be required for each certified company's chief compliance officer.

Compliance with the standards will be monitored through independent third party audits such as those being offered by KirkpatrickPrice. Allegations of non-conformity may be investigated, and penalties for failing to conform to standards could result in disciplinary action.
