Outsourcing Codeword: AMC

Ever notice how the only people who seem to be espousing outsourcing are those who gain financially? appraisal management companies themselves [1]

As a self-proclaimed technology maven, I wonder if technology is the answer [2] to all our problems within the appraisal process? In many ways, it can dumb it down, causing the process to drift away from its original intention. The AMC process seems to be an automated paper handling compliance machine.

Another AMC took outsourcing abroad to perform appraisal reviews.

How is it humanly possible to perform a review appraisal from another country [3] unless the report is nothing but a compliance document and not a basis of risk analysis?

AMC’s are here to stay. Where is there middle ground between form-filling compliance automation and hand done reviews?
