Media inquiries should be directed to the NCUA Office of Public and Congressional Affairs at (703) 518–6671 or pacamail@ncua.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is conducting a comprehensive review of the loan, deposit, and investment information collected electronically during examinations of federally insured credit unions (FICUs). The overarching goal is to modernize, formalize, and standardize data formats collected during examinations from the core data processing and offline systems 1 used by credit unions. The purpose of this modernization effort is to: a. Achieve a more consistent examination process; b. Promote agency efficiencies and reduce burden on credit unions; c. Reduce onsite time by streamlining agency efforts to sort, organize, and format data; d. Improve data reliability and quality to enable more offsite work; e. Enhance the objectivity of examination conclusions with a more thorough and advanced portfolio analysis; and f. Support the Exam Flexibility Initiative’s 2 longer examination cycle, consistency between examiners, better communication, more efficient examination planning process, and better offsite monitoring tools. 1 Offline systems is defined as other IT systems not connected or linked to the core data processing system or third party vendors with loan, deposit, and investment data. These may include, but are not limited to, credit cards, mortgage loans, student loans, indirect loans, etc. 2 https://www.ncua.gov/About/Documents/examflexibility/exam-flexibility-initiative-report-2016oct.pdf PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50447 This RFI is a major step in NCUA’s internal modernization efforts. After considerable research and analysis, the agency is now at a point where it can outline the scope of its planned improvements. In turn, NCUA seeks the views of the public on this initiative and is eager to gain input from interested stakeholders on a number of aspects related to the future data collection by NCUA. Specifically, this RFI explains NCUA’s objectives and seeks insights from stakeholders in identifying the interrelated considerations and challenges that could arise if NCUA adopts a new standardized data format for loan, deposit, and investment data.3 NCUA will use information furnished by stakeholders to help further define data fields to collect electronically, develop a standard data format (including field names and definitions), and comprise an implementation strategy that reduces burden without compromising the agency’s ability to safeguard the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). Separate and apart from the normal examination data download process, FICUs with assets greater than $10B must comply with 12 CFR 702, subpart E which implements capital planning and stress testing.4 The information collected as part of this process is not the focus of this RFI as it differs significantly in timing, purpose, and content. In addition to this RFI, the agency may seek clearance from the Office of Management and Budget to conduct stakeholder calls and form workgroups to gather additional information about barriers and benefits to this modernization initiative. NCUA invites interested parties to respond generally to this modernization initiative and specifically to the questions included in this RFI. 3 A standard data format will not replace or eliminate all examiner data requests occurring during an examination. NCUA encourages responders to recommend other data sources that NCUA could standardize to improve exam efficiency. 4 Implemented in 2014, NCUA’s Office of National Examination and Supervision (ONES) collects detailed loan level data and select share data to run stress test scenarios and loan portfolio analytics for supervisory purpose. Currently, these credit unions send monthly data to NCUA on a quarterly basis using standard templates with 191 unique data fields relevant to each data type including automobile, credit cards, student, real estate, member business loans, and other consumer loans. The sample formats in this RFI include 53 similar fields to those collected by ONES. E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1
