PSA Open Source Intelligence (OSI) and PSA Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) reports are the cornerstone of our global and regional third-party due diligence programs. Our in-program due diligence efforts begin with the desktop-only research of the OSI and scale up to the in-language, on-the-ground research of an EDD.
An EDD can be further expanded by selecting and including additional investigative elements in an individual request. This includes site visits, a mapping of the full chain of ownership of an entity (“NO” or “UBO Mapping”), in-person or remote compliance/questionnaire interviews, and discreet information collection from well-placed local and industry specific human sources.
These options dramatically increase the effective reach of each engagement. This spectrum also works to empower clients to implement a risk-based approach, with due diligence efforts calibrated to each engagement’s jurisdiction, value, and other factors dictating compliance risk.
