  2. Interactions / Discussions with the management
  3. Preparation of the Rating / Review note
  4. Presentation of the Rating / Review note to the Rating Committee
  5. Administrative and secretarial work relating to Rating Committee Meetings

Non-core / non-analytical activities:

Acuite has appointed tele-calling / client servicing executives who are off-roll associates for the purposes of following up for information from rated entities fore surveillance and review.


These associates are on a term contract with a third-party service provider purely from a payroll processing perspective. However, the training, monitoring / supervision and reporting is to an employee on the rolls of Acuite. These associates are bound by all the policies and guidelines of Acuite. Apart from processing payroll the third-party service provider has no role in the day to day management of these associates.
