NOT AN APPRAISAL MANAGEMENT COMPANY (AMC):
The Designated Appraiser Coalition (DAC) service system does not act as an AMC, but rather, provides top level designated and licensed appraisal service professionals a vehicle through which their clients can work directly with them without third party influence. For purposes of disclosure, the PROVIDER does not permit service functions within the DAC service system that may be described, considered or viewed as an AMC function. In certain instances, the Provider may admit AMC to use the DAC service system as a registered client; however, this requires a separate registration process. If you wish to operate as an AMC Client within the DAC service system, you are directed hereby to not proceed further, but to email the DAC Services Administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org The DAC does not direct the engagement, processing, delivery, or billing for services in any way. These processes are strictly managed directly between the Client and the Valuation Service Provider member they select. AMC's can be authorized to use the DAC service system as a platform for processing their services through independent DAC Valuation Service Provider members; however, by disclosure here, the DAC certifies that it does not operate as an AMC and any service deployed, now or in the future, that could be construed as an AMC function conducted by the DAC will be eliminated from DAC service profiles. By using this site, unless you are a licensed, operating AMC that has completed the formal DAC application, verification and training program applicable to AMC Clients you agree not to employ the DAC service system in any way that could be construed as an AMC function. Users are notified that if any AMC function, not directly licensed or otherwise authorized by the DAC Governance Committee, is detected within the system, those participating, subject to DAC Governance Committee review, may be subject to revocation of system use. You agree to submit any questions regarding permitted use of the DAC service system to the DAC Governance Committee for review as provided in the site.
