ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Aug. 19, 2021) – The National Credit Union Administration will host a webinar on the agency’s modernized examination tools on Wednesday, September 8, beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern.
The webinar will focus on the NCUA’s new modern examination platforms and systems, including the agency’s Modern Examination & Risk Identification Tool, or MERIT. The webinar will discuss the benefits of these systems to credit unions and federal and state examiners, and it will also provide information on:
- Data Exchange Application (DEXA) — This web-based application can be used by credit unions to import member loan and share data to the NCUA for examination purposes.
- NCUA Connect — This is a common entry point for authorized users to securely access NCUA’s applications, like MERIT and others.
- Admin Portal — This secure portal provides state regulatory agencies and credit unions access to NCUA Connect and other examination-related applications.
“The NCUA should be innovative, forward-thinking, and risk-focused,” NCUA Chairman Todd M. Harper said. “MERIT and its related systems are just that, and they will be the foundation for the agency’s examination program going forward. I encourage stakeholders across the federally insured credit union system to register and participate in this important webinar.”
Registration for this hour-long webinar is now open (opens new window). Participants will be able to log into the webinar and view it on their computers or mobile devices using the registration link. Participants should allow pop-ups from this website to ensure full functionality.
Participants can submit questions anytime during the presentation or in advance by emailing WebinarQuestions@ncua.gov. The email’s subject line should read, “NCUA Modernized Examination Tools.”
