The FDIC's Division of Supervision (DOS) recently realigned its regional office responsibilities as part of its Case Manager Program. In order to further the program's goals of streamlining the supervision process and simplifying communication channels with insured institutions, DOS has established the position of regional accountant at each of its eight regional offices.
As a result of changes in accounting standards and an increase in the complexity of transactions, FDIC examiners have more frequently encountered complicated accounting questions in recent years. The regional accountants, all of whom are certified public accountants and who previously served as bank examiners, are technical specialists to whom examiners, case managers and other regional staff may turn for advice on bank accounting and regulatory reporting issues. In addition, bankers and their independent public accountants may contact their appropriate regional accountant to discuss accounting and regulatory reporting matters.
The attachment identifies each regional accountant and provides his or her office address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address and the states whose banks are generally supervised by that office.
If you have questions, please contact your appropriate regional office.
