HMDA and CRA Data Scrubs: Monthly, Quarterly or Annual Data Scrub Services

Accurate HMDA and CRA data form the basis of the key data used in fair lending and CRA examinations. Our consultants understand bank operations and systems, HMDA and CRA data requirements, and the technology used to transform that data into highly accurate data ready to be submitted and analyzed. Our process reviews have helped many institutions decrease the amount of time and money spent capturing and “scrubbing” this data. 

The Submission Services Package

The submission services package is a cost-effective outsourcing service for HMDA and CRA (small business) submissions. Our experts will import an HMDA and/or CRA year-end file, geocode HMDA and CRA data, check for quality, validity, and/or syntactical errors, conduct FFIEC edit verification, and submit to the government electronically in the required format.

CRA Wiz and Fair Lending Wiz

These products provide the analytics needed to fully understand what the new data says before data becomes publically available.

Fair Lending Risk Reviews

The Fair Lending Risk Review focuses more on the specific analysis of transactions and data.  It includes a look at data quality, performance compared to demographics and peers, regression analysis identifying outliers, and focal point reviews, and it can include a Comparative File Review

Fair Lending and Compliance Program Risk Assessments

The Fair Lending Risk Assessment helps our clients understand fair lending risks end-to-end in the lending cycle, and comprehensively across all products and services.  We can evaluate controls and identify gaps in your program.  We can also provide a scoring framework you can use year over year.  We can also do a broader Compliance Program Risk Assessment to capture a broader scope of regulatory risk.

CRA Assessments

Wolters Kluwer Advisory Services has experienced professionals with deep experience in CRA. With the convergence of HMDA, fair lending and CRA, we can help with self-assessment of performance against regulatory criteria.  We work collaboratively with clients to create flexible, go-forward strategies and solutions to meet client needs, whether preparing for a CRA exam or addressing CRA challenges facing the organization.  The primary purposes of a CRA Self-Assessment are to help a bank: (1) calibrate its current level of CRA performance; and (2) identify opportunities for enhancing CRA performance before the next examination.

Compliance Management System (CMS) Reviews

Our CMS review helps financial institutions identify gaps in their compliance risk management program.  Each review is unique and can focus on comprehensive assessments to single subject reviews; from regular, ongoing evaluations to one-time redesign projects; from broad policy reviews to deep-dive transaction testing, or from training program reviews to customer complaint management programs.
