The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) recently published results of their National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) exam survey in the September issue of their monthly newsletter, Economic & CU Monitor. In the results, credit unions noted a decline in examiners’ capabilities, yet noticed improvements in the overall examination process.

Of the credit unions that responded to the survey, almost 25% noted that the exam process was improved over previous years, while just over 12% mentioned that it was worse. However, the results differed when it came to the examiners. Almost 15% of respondents found their examiner to be less competent, while just over 8% noticed an improvement over previous years.

The same questions were asked during August 2012, when “0% of credit unions responding said the process was better,” according to David Carrier, the chief economist and director of research for the NAFCU.
