Review your institution’s Board Resolution and Official Authorization List

Having accurate, up-to-date account information is imperative to engaging in business with the Federal Reserve Banks. Your institution needs to have a current Board Resolution (BR) and Official Authorization List (OAL) on file with the Federal Reserve Banks to identify the individuals who have the authority to take action as it relates to the operation of your account.

These documents allow those individuals to issue instructions with respect to your institution's relationship with a Federal Reserve Bank and its use of Federal Reserve Financial Services. Agreements, forms and other requests need to be signed by an individual listed on your institution's OAL.

Action Item:

Regularly review your institution’s BR and OAL and file new documents when changes warrant. For more information about updating forms and agreements, please visit the Accounting Services Forms page or contact your respective district’s BR and OAL contact.
