In order to begin working with the Federal Reserve Banks, all Financial Institutions that maintain an account and/or use services at a Federal Reserve Bank must have Board Resolutions and a current Official Authorization List (OAL) in the standard form required by the Federal Reserve Banks on file. These forms also must be on file prior to submitting Appendices 1-3 from Operating Circular (OC) #1 and Attachments A and B from the Account Structure Guide (ASG). Appendices 1-3 and Attachments A and B determine your account type and settlement relationships. Please note that the individual signing the appendices must be listed on the OAL in order for the request to be processed.
Institutions that do not have an account with the Federal Reserve Banks but wish to have access to Federal Reserve Financial Services should also have a current Board Resolutions and Official Authorization List (OAL) on file.
