RATA Implementing the CRA Modernization

Added on September 18, 2020

The OCC published their Final Rule changes regarding modernization of CRA data collection on May 20th and there were several changes in the ruling that can affect Comply; both in the collection of CRA-reportable data as well as assessment area analysis. While most of the rule changes are a few years away from full implementation, there are some aspects that we are moving forward with now in Comply to gain some momentum. Specifically, the upcoming release of Comply 20.0 will include a geocode attribute that denotes if a geocoded loan or loan application is within a Native Land or Tribal Area. This addition, while in the spirit of the OCC changes, could be of value to CRA reporters of other agencies as well. We are also incorporating a field in the demographic data to facilitate…

FFIEC Releases 2020 Demographic Data

Added on August 5, 2020

RATA Associates is pleased to announce that the 2020 FFIEC demographic data is now available for all RATA Clients. If you use Auto-Updates to keep your system data up to date, you should see the new data available the next time you log in to Comply. If you don't use Auto-Updates the data will be available on the RATA Support Site to download and import. Comply links the demographics to the geocoding in the system automatically so once you update your system all new reports and views of the data are retroactive for the entire year. For those of you using our QuickPoint Web Service (QPWS) to geocode applications real-time in your LOS systems, you will only receive the new demographics from today forward since they are sent at the time the geocode is assigned. Again, this is only an issue…

Added on June 29, 2020

The CFPB has released the 2019 national HMDA peer data as of June 24th. RATA downloaded the data and quickly began formatting it for use in the Comply software. As of today (June 29) the data is ready for release to Comply customers. RATA will not be updating the Peer website with the 2019 data.

2019 Modified LAR Data Release and Improved Peer-2-Peer in Comply

Added on April 3, 2020

As many of you may have noticed, the 2019 Modified LAR data was released by the CFPB/FFIEC on March 31st. While this information is useful for analyzing individual institution data, there is no transmittal information to help select your peer groups. If you know the name and LEI of one of your peers that you would like to analyze, you can download the individual data and load to a reporting entity in Comply. We have an Import definition that should help you with this.  The National Aggregate Dataset is the data we use to populate the Peer-2-Peer system with all of the reporters' data. This data includes the necessary respondent information in addition to the LAR data itself. We have attempted in the past to utilize this early release of the data, but what we found was that the data…
