The STAR platform enables you to automate all of your political activity pre-clearance requests. Employees can quickly prepare and submit pre-clearance requests for any planned political contributions or activities. Employees simply log in to the web-based application, fill out a pre-clearance request form and await an automated approval or denial decision.
The system can be configured to follow precise rules to automatically check political contributions, as well as produce customized reports of current and historical trends. You can create custom profiles for each employee, apply donation limits to specific user groups, and set review thresholds that apply to users within those groups. This is useful for monitoring high-risk employees or groups, creating a truly robust conflict-of-interest detection system.
The STAR platform collects and integrates data from systems across your business, which are cross-referenced when any employee seeks permission for political activities or donations. Your compliance team can set the rules for automatically surveying this data, whenever an employee makes a pre-clearance request.
The STAR platform can pinpoint high-risk employees, external contacts and groups by monitoring employee records to identify suspicious activities. It can automatically raise cases that may violate company principles or client interests.
In addition to monitoring political contributions, you can create periodic political activity reports. The STAR application enables you to set workflow and rule configurations to determine the requirements for these reports and attestations.
