If your audit firm needs information relating to your Federal Reserve Bank account, you can use Confirmation.com (Off-site), part of Thomson Reuters, to electronically request fast and secure audit confirmations for:
- Fedwire® Securities Service account holdings information
- Account Balance
- Capital Stock
- Pledged collateral holdings for Treasury Tax & Loan (TT&L)
- 31 CFR Part 202
- 31 CFR Part 225
- Discount Window loan or collateral information
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.
You must have an Authorization to Release Information to Accounting Firms (PDF) form on file before the Federal Reserve Banks can respond to a confirmation request from your institution’s audit firm through Confirmation.com. 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.
Confirmation.com is the preferred processing method because it is an online, paperless process with a fast turnaround time. However, 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.
