SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    On October 23, 2020, the FDIC issued an IFR allowing insured 
depository institutions (IDIs) to determine the applicability of part 
363 of the FDIC's regulations for fiscal years ending in 2021 based on 
the lesser of the IDI's (a) consolidated total assets as of December 
31, 2019; or (b) consolidated total assets as of the beginning of their 
fiscal years ending in 2021.
    Notwithstanding the temporary relief provided by the IFR, IDIs 
remain subject to any audit and reporting requirements applicable under 
other laws and regulations. Also, the FDIC reserves the authority to 
require an IDI to comply with one or more requirements under part 363 
if the FDIC determines that asset growth was related to a merger or 
acquisition.
