5Sustainable Compliance Patriot Act – What Is It?TermsOFAC – Office of Foreign Asset ControlSDN – Specially Designated NationalFinancial SanctionsSome terms you should know as they will be mentioned in this presentation as well as in the delivered product and product documentation:OFAC – The Office of Foreign Asset Control – This US governing body maintains the list of specially designated nationals, who are suspected of being hostile to the United States. It is from their website where we would download the SDN list for use in validating customers and vendors when they are used on business documents.SDN – Specially Designated Nationals – as mentioned above, persons who are deemed a threat to the United States.Financial Sanctions – are actions taken against denied parties where a business would cease taking orders, shipping products, and collecting and distributing payments to persons who appear on the SDN list.“This presentation is for informational purposes only and may not be incorporated into a contract or agreement.”
6Sustainable Compliance Patriot Act Compliance BenefitsReduces exposure for business transactions with Denied PartiesAvoid costly fines and possible prosecutionOf course, as mentioned previously, this is an important compliance tool to prevent your organization from doing business with persons, countries or using vessels to transport your goods that may be hostile to the United States. It can also hopefully assist you in avoiding the costly fines and possible prosecution associated with violating the Patriot Act.Click to advance to the next slide.

We have provided screens to review the contents of the lists that were downloaded on inquiry screens.*********************************************************
9Financial Sanction Validation Setup and Process PROCESSESInstallation OptionsVendorThe key setup steps are:Set your Installation Options. It is here, under the “Overall” options where you will set up your Financial Sanctions search criteria.At the Order Management Business Unit Level, you would indicate whether the business unit does financial sanctions screening, and if it does, you would enter your Hold and Reason codes, that you’ve already previously established to be used when the system finds a suspect match on the denied parties lists.If desired, you can optionally create Financial Sanctions Message Codes with a text description that tells users why a particular customer or document is on Financial Sanctions Hold.At the customer level, you would indicate whether or not your customer should be screened. Keep in mind, we are screening against a Customer Name as well as address, and while a customer may have an address that passes muster initially, they may give you an override ship to address on a business document that is screened and found to be suspicious. Setting a screening flag at the customer level, ensures that document override addresses don’t slip through without being checked.Your final step is to download the denied parties list from the OFAC website into PeopleSoft tables. These are the tables that customer and vendor names and addresses will be screened against. It is strongly suggested that this download occur on a fairly regular basis, as this list is maintained by OFAC on a daily basis, and they do not push out notifications when they have updated their lists.The process is then executed as follows:When a customer is added or maintained, the information is checked against the denied parties list. This includes customer information that may be imported from an external system. If the customer passes the check, no action is taken. If the customer doesn’t pass the check, the customer is flagged as a suspected match and their compliance status is displayed. Appropriate actions would include clearing the customer by making a call to the OFAC compliance hotline and resolving the situation with the compliance agent. You would then manually either release the customer if they pass, or set the customer’s status to “inactive” if they do not.For business documents such as the Sales Order, RMA, Quote, etc., the customer flag is checked to ensure that screening should be done for this customer. Anytime an order/rma/quote address is changed or added, the system goes through the check against the denied parties list and checks for matches. If there is a match, the business document is placed on hold and the manual step of calling the OFAC hotline and speaking with a compliance agent is performed. Once the match is cleared, the document can proceed with processing. If the customer on the business document is not cleared, the document should be cancelled immediately with the appropriate reason code furnished for the cancellation.Click to advance to the next slideBankPaymentAutomated process
10Financial Sanction Validation Process PROCESSESIn release 9, you can validate your transaction against a list of counterparties with whom you would rather not be dealing with.OFAC’s SDN supportEU e-CTFSL supportCustom list supportAll entities operating within U.S., all U.S. incorporated entities and their foreign branches are required to comply with the Office of Foreign Assets Control regulations. In particular, all dealings are generally prohibited with entities or individuals that represent countries against which the U.S. are enforcing economic sanctions or that are linked to terrorist or criminal activities. The OFAC publishes the list of such countries, entities and individuals (know as the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list) on their website.For customers and vendors who are based in EEC, a similar law apply, and requires that customers and vendor be validated against electronic Consolidated Targeted Financial Sanctions List (e-CTFSL) maintained in accordance with the European Union’s Common Foreign and Security Policy.To help you comply with the financial sanction enforcement, Enterprise Cash Management 9 supports both OFAC’s and EU’s lists and provides a venue for a custom list creation. The updates for both lists can be automatically downloaded from the respective web-sites.Let’s see what append in the solution(click to see the animation)MatchingInsure ComplianceSupplierCreationInvoice CreationInvoiceApprovalPayment

For instance, if you are leveraging the Verity search engine, you can set a tolerance level in the Installation options that returns hits based on a minimum “score” that the system calculates based on what matched..name, address, vessel, etc.The Screening process provided in 9.0, is an OFAC SDN Search API in Enterprise that consists of a new Application Class. This Application Class is leveraged for all the Modules in Financials and Supply Chain to directly access the methods within this class in order to validate the Name and Address of the Specially Designated Nationals from the List of all the entities provided by the OFAC or any other denied parties lists you have downloaded.We strongly suggest that you download new lists on a regular basis since the Office of Foreign Asset Control doesn’t notify you when they prepare and publish and updated list. There is not a regularly scheduled update schedule, so to be on the safe side and to make sure you are working with the most up-to-date information, you should schedule the download on an regular basis at whatever timeframe works for your organization.Click to advance to next slide.
