Use of Supervisory Enforcement Actions
GGD-89-105BR: Published: Jul 19, 1989. Publicly Released: Jul 19, 1989.
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the Federal Home Loan Bank Board's (FHLBB) supervisory enforcement actions to prevent or correct targeted violations or unsafe or unsound practices.
GAO found that FHLBB enforcement actions at 47 near-failing thrifts between January 1986 and December 1988 were not always effective in preventing or correcting violations or unsafe or unsound practices.
