What kinds of services do you offer?

home page you will
find links to all services offered.
What is Compliance Management?
- Compliance Management is an emerging science that
focuses on compliance to applicable standards. This includes establishing
systems and auditing those systems to assure you remain compliant to specific
standards, government regulations and legal requirements. As litigation
increases within the US, it is more and more important to assure you remain
compliant to your documented systems and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Why would I use Compliance Managers to do something
I can do internally?
- Our clients find us
to be faster and better. The real expense of an audit is the auditees,
not the auditor. We reduce that cost.
- Your core business activities that provide sales and eventually revenue
suffer each time someone strays from their core activities. Every time
someone drops the ball because of a non-core activity, you pay for it.
We do an effective job, quickly and at a firm-fixed annual cost.
OIL CHANGE THEORY:
- Have you changed
your own oil lately? Probably not, because of the cost and time
savings (which is money). You have your oil changed for you by experts with
the right equipment and supplies and the proper disposal methods. It's not something you can't do.
It's something that allows you to quickly comply with your maintenance
requirements, government regulations and time constraints.
- We are highly trained content experts who maintain your system more quickly
and very possibly more effectively than your internal staff.
- Why not
just use my registrar. Why should I use Compliance Managers.
- Many companies are
both relieved and disappointed to find out the registrar audits are of little
value to the company. They don't want a company that certifies
them also digging into the system. They're pleased the audit is light.
- Compliance Managers performs a very thorough
audit, looking for ways that the system can benefit your company.
- Can you
replace my registrar?
- We can't replace
your registrar, but as an agent of your company, we can assist you in finding
one that better fits your needs if you click
here. We compliment the activities of your
registrar. The registrar does an audit for compliance to the standard.
We audit to improve the usefulness of your overall system. We audit and
provide systemic input. The registrar is limited to auditing.
is a Compliance Manager?
- A Compliance Manager is the person who will manage your systems for you.
These are colleagues of Compliance Managers. They are commonly lead
assessors for your business code, but at a minimum are very familiar with your
How long have you been in business?
- Compliance Managers is a division of Dean Todd and Associates, LLC a
Michigan Based training and consulting organization in
operation since 1996. During that period we have served over 200 companies
with repeat business in our core activity. See our companies and
industries served information.
How do I know Compliance Managers can be trusted?
- Compliance Managers is comprised of industry consultants that have
served many companies and industries within the United States and England.
See our companies and
industries served information for more detail. In order to protect client privacy,
the last activity in business engagement between any client and Compliance
Managers is client references. There are many and all are exemplary.
What does "you don't pay
unless you're satisfied" really mean?
- It means each time
work is performed by Compliance Managers, you're contacted to assure you're
satisfied with that work. If you're not satisfied with the work
performed, we will work to make it right or you won't pay for work performed.
It's that simple. The legal explanation is established in your contract.
Are your personnel
subcontractors or employees?
- We use subcontractors
us to keep costs down. Highly skilled individuals with many years
of experience are expensive to retain on staff and would only increase the
rates charged by Compliance Managers. It would not improve the quality
of service to have our people as employees. Most of our subcontractors
have been working with us for years.
What is the online tracking system?
- As part of the total
compliance managers system, we offer to track your open issues (think of it as
a "to do" list) online. You're notified a month, a week and a day in
advance of the due date that an issue needs attention. When overdue,
delinquency notices are sent to those working on concerns and also to
management. This allows you to manage your action items from your email
inbox and stay on top of the system implementation and at the same time, know
what has to be done.
- We also notify you online
and email when we are planning to perform work.
You're notified months, weeks and days in advance. No one is surprised
by our visits.
- How often do I get a new Compliance Manager?
- We will change as often as you like, but we prefer to establish someone
who will stay with you for three years. Periodically we audit the
systems development to assure the system is maturing.
What if we get a non
conformance in our Registrar or Compliance audit?
- Although unusual,
when it does happen, it is usually because of interpretation differences
between the auditor and your Compliance Manager. The Compliance Manager,
at your request, will contact your registrar to define the issue and help to
