Supervisory Policy and Guidance Topics


The Federal Reserve uses automated screening systems to conduct routine monitoring of the financial condition and performance of state member banks and BHCs. These surveillance systems rely on Call Reports and other financial regulatory reports, as well as examination data, to identify institutions exhibiting financial deterioration or increased risk profiles. This surveillance process ensures that these institutions receive timely supervisory attention and that examination resources can be directed to weak and potentially troubled institutions to supplement on-site examinations and inspections.
