The models owned are used for regulatory and economic capital calculation, risk based decision making, portfolio management, pricing, and multiple other uses. During the entire model life cycle you are responsible for the oversight of these models, while depending on the phase of the life cycle your role will either lean towards formulating opinions on the quality of models, initiating discussions on necessary changes, or reporting on the state of affairs of the models.
