As a reminder, the Federal Reserve Banks use Confirmation.com (Off-site), a service by Capital Confirmation, Inc., to facilitate the electronic processing of audit confirmation requests for:

  • Fedwire® Securities Service account holdings information
  • Account Balance
  • Capital Stock
  • Pledged collateral holdings for Treasury Tax & Loan (TT&L)
  • 31CFR Part 202
  • 31CFR Part 225
  • Discount Window loan or collateral information

Confirmation.com is the preferred processing method for audit confirmation requests for all Federal Reserve Bank business lines. However, please note that the Federal Reserve Banks of Dallas, New York, Richmond and St. Louis will not accept requests for Discount Window loan or collateral information through Confirmation.com.

Prepare accordingly

Before the Federal Reserve Banks can respond to a confirmation request from your institution’s audit firm through Confirmation.com, you must have an Authorization to Release Information to Accounting Firms (PDF) form on file. The release form must be signed by an individual on your institution’s Official Authorization List (OAL) and only needs to be submitted once rather than submitting a separate authorization letter for each paper audit confirmation request.

Submission process

While our preferred method to process account confirmations is electronically through Confirmation.com, which is an online, paperless process with a faster turnaround time, as an alternative you may submit a request manually by completing the standard Audit Confirmation Request Form (PDF). This form must be submitted according to the instructions provided for your respective local district. Requests received by other means will be returned for resubmission via the standard form. Please communicate this information to your designated audit firm to ensure efficient audit confirmation processing.

For questions regarding audit confirmation requests, please contact your local Account Confirmation Request Contact.
