Before applying to the JPD, applicants are strongly advised to carefully read all documents and consult all other documents relating to this internship program (to learn more from the EEAS website, eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage/2463/junior-professional-in-delegation-jpd_en Protiviti can assist MAOS in selecting delegated bodies and entering into delegation agreements that clearly define the roles and obligations of first and downstream companies in relation to the insurance plan and its members and suppliers. We can also develop an effective formal delegation program, help us develop legal compliance guidelines and procedures, and define a governance approach and governance structure for monitoring delegate performance. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has sole responsibility for the MAO to ensure that all activities required or subject to CMS standards are delegated in accordance with applicable standards.1Cer many MAOs do not meet this basic requirement because they do not have a formal delegation oversight program and a governance structure to continuously monitor the performance of their delegates. This creates the potential for negative consequences. If cms feels that the performance of a delegate is not satisfactory, this may result in fines and/or regulatory sanctions, financial losses, legal action and the loss of the licence for the activity of the delegate and the MAO. This policy defines the WMF delegation process as well as the specific delegations of the financial authority and the expenses granted to the Executive Director by the Foundation Board to WMF staff. Financial delegations are the mechanisms by which the WMF allows its staff to commit funds on behalf of the WMF. Delegations give WMF staff the formal authority to engage WMF financially and legally and to assume debts on behalf of the WMF. A common failure of surveillance is not having a clear view of the entire „delegate landscape.“ Therefore, when implementing their formal delegation programmes, MAOs should answer the following questions: as soon as the agreement and delegation structure are in force, THE MAOS must carry out at least full annual evaluations of a delegate`s performance, including compliance with applicable standards. Ongoing follow-up and annual evaluations of delegates must be conducted by qualified staff. Specific corrective measures should be put in place in the event of problems or deficiencies.
In order to ensure that first-class and downstream firms are not fully informed of and/or comply with regulatory requirements, MAOS should define an organizational approach and organizational structure that supports the delegation process.
