Compliance Risk Analysis Division
The Compliance Risk Analysis Division (CRAD) contributes to the development and execution of the OCC's supervisory and regulatory mission in three major ways: 1) direct exam support for bank supervision, 2) economic and policy analysis, and 3) pursuit of an active research agenda. Staff use statistical analysis and develop econometric models to support bank examinations that monitor compliance with federal laws and regulations. Specific areas of focus include those related to credit access and anti-money laundering. Staff's quantitative expertise also serves the basis for inter-agency and intra-agency discussions that support the development of banking and regulatory policies. In addition, staff actively conduct original and publishable research in areas of mortgage, finance, labor, and statistics.
