"While I am personally confident that the results of D.C. Federal Credit Union’s examination did not leak from NCUA, I have asked our Office of the Inspector General to fully investigate this issue, to determine which among the parties with access to the confidential examination information, whether NCUA or the credit union’s board or management, took this illegal action. Once we have all the facts, we will determine what action is appropriate,” Matz said in a statement.
Examination reports and other documents obtained by Credit Union Times showed that the credit union received a CAMEL 3 rating and was a “high strategic risk.”
Examination reports and follow up documents are considered privileged information and neither the NCUA nor the credit union are allowed to disclose their results, including the CAMEL ratings.
