Welcome » IT Booklets » Supervision of Technology Service Providers (TSP) » Supervisory Policy
Supervisory policy provides for interagency examinations of TSPs
that service insured financial institutions supervised by more than
one federal financial institution regulator. The policy is expected
to eliminate the need for separate examinations of TSPs by more
than one regulator and to result in more efficient use of examiner
resources and with less burden to the supervised TSP.
Notwithstanding this policy, no federal or state regulatory agency
is precluded from conducting an independent examination of any TSP
that is servicing an insured financial institution for which the
agency is responsible.
Federal and/or state banking agencies participating on
interagency TSP examinations are precluded from levying any
examination-associated fees against the examined service
