Subcontractor Oversight Program

The Subcontractor Oversight Program created by the National Creditors Bar Association is for the assessment of third-party subcontractors for law firms including process servers, asset locators, letter vendors, software vendors, skip tracers, data vendors, and more.


Why Become Assessed through NCBA?


  • Instead of dealing with numerous audits from many NCBA member firms, a subcontractor would respond to just one assessment.


  • Assessments are performed by Crowe LLP, a national top ten accounting firm.


  • Assessment shows you are a credible vendor for creditors rights law firms.


  • Prices start at just $4,995 depending on the services required for the first year assessment and $3,495 for the second year to maintain good standing. Does not include remediation costs, and a full assessment must be completed every other year.
