2018 HMDA Peer Data

Added on April 4, 2019

The FFIEC/CFPB recently released the 2018 HMDA peer data to their Modified LAR page. If you would like to look up your data or see other individual institution data you can find it here https://ffiec.cfpb.gov/data-publication/modified-lar/2018. In years past, RATA has been able to download the data for all institutions, manipulate the data and release it for use in Peer2Peer and DataMine very quickly. The reason we were able to do this was that the data always contained the same fields and they were in the same basic format. This year however, that is not the case. We want to inform our users about what we are seeing with this new data and new format, the challenges we are running into, and the plan(s) we have in place to get you this data as quickly as possible. Phase One and Challenge…

Update 3/1/2019 - Comply 365: Submission Edition

Added on March 1, 2019

New 3/1/2019: Missing LEI in Transmittal Causes Submission Error on Portal - It is very important to ensure that the LEI field is populated in the reporting entity transmittal properties for all HMDA reporting entities that you wish to submit for 2018 and beyond. If you create your submission file without first populating the LEI field, you will receive an error upon upload to the platform stating "In order to access the HMDA Platform, each of your institutions must have a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)", and your submission will be rejected. If you experience this error when uploading your file, you will need to unlock your reporting entity, add your LEI to the properties, and then go through the submission wizard again, selecting the option to reset and recreate. Before uploading…

BISG Proxy Data Update Available

Added on February 12, 2019

There is a new version of the Surname Probability table that is used for the Bayesian Improved Surname Geocoding (BISG) proxy methodology in Comply. We made some minor adjustments to the suppressed values in the table as per instructions in the CFPB proxy methodologies. These updated values can help increase the accuracy of the proxy calculations by less than one percent on average. You will want to update the data at your earliest convenience just to be fully up-to-date and get the best results possible. Updating the Surname table in Comply is a simple System Data import. If you use Auto Updates and the Census Bureau/Social Security Proxy Data option is checked, the new table should download automatically to be applied. This option is not normally on by default. To change it, simply go…

End of Comply Support for SQL 2008

Added on February 6, 2019

Microsoft is ending support for SQL 2008 and RATA is following suit. Comply 18.1 is the last Comply update that will work with SQL 2008. There are features needed for ongoing development that are only available in SQL 2012 and higher so this move is a necessity. We stopped supporting new installations using SQL 2008 with the release of Comply 17 but we have allowed updates to still use the deprecated version of SQL Server. As far as we know, most, if not all of our clients, have migrated to SQL 2012 or higher. If you are one of the few remaining die-hards, please begin preparations to migrate to a newer SQL Server environment at your earliest convenience. Contact us at (407) 831-7282 if you have any questions or need additional information.

 

Comply 18.1 Update Is Now Available

Added on February 5, 2019

Comply 18.1 is now available for download from the RATA Support site. This version incorporates all of the earlier 17 and 18 updates along with other beneficial changes. If you have updated to 18.01 this release is not needed for submission.  However, if you can update it wouldn't hurt.  Every version of Comply is always a little better than the previous.  If you are updating from 18.00 or 18.01 this update should be just a normal update because all of the 18 updates conversions have already been done.  If you are updating from a Comply 17 system please read all of the important Comply 18 update info below because this update will run all of the 18 updates as well. If you have questions please call. Check the changes document to see a list of all changes to decide the…
