Community Bank – Specialty Supervision Locations

Specialty Supervision comprises Novel Bank Supervision, Technology Service Providers Supervision, Thrift Supervision, and Special Supervision. These institutions are not tied to a specific geography and are grouped within portfolios led by supervisors with specialized expertise.

  • Novel Bank Supervision – supervises banks that concentrate their business models on innovative delivery channels, operations, or third-party relationships or focus on cryptocurrency custody, merchant processing, or other uses of blockchain technology;
  • Technology Service Provider Supervision – supervises regional technology service providers;
  • Thrift Supervision – ensures the OCC maintains balanced, consistent interpretation and application of supervisory policies and OCC regulations for federal savings associations; and
  • Special Supervision – supervises the OCC's most critical problem banks and develops and implements rehabilitation or resolution strategies.
