This month, NCUA also added a new search feature for administrative actions. Available at http://go.usa.gov/gFP5, users can now search prohibition and administrative orders by name, institution, city, state and year. The change will allow users to find NCUA administrative actions more quickly and easily. Users may also use the revised webpage to link to the enforcement actions of other federal regulators against other institutions or their affiliated parties.
NCUA enforcement orders are available online at http://go.usa.gov/4ReQ and for inspection at NCUA’s Office of General Counsel between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. You may order copies by mail from NCUA, 1775 Duke St., Alexandria, VA 22314-3428.
Violation of a prohibition order is a felony offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million.
