ASA Publishes Updated Issue Paper on Managing Risks in MSP and VMS Arrangements

Managed service provider (MSP) and vendor management service (VMS) arrangements provide significant value to staffing buyers and staffing agencies alike, which is why they have become so prevalent in the past 20 years.

Staffing buyers and staffing agencies assessing whether to use such services tend to focus primarily on the MSP or VMS providers’ software and service capabilities, often overlooking the providers’ financial strength. That is an oversight that can put buyers and agencies at substantial risk.

A newly published issue paper, “Managing Risks in MSP and VMS Arrangements,” describes the key financial warning signs staffing buyers and agencies should look for and the steps they can take to mitigate their risks.
