Shared Compliance Services
CURoots offers a variety of services to help you keep pace with ever-changing regulatory compliance while you focus on day-to-day credit union business.
Internal Audit Services
CURoots can help your credit union identify potential issues, assess risk, and save valuable time and resources by providing expert assistance for your auditing needs.
The sale and transfer of assets will be finalized on Feb. 28. The date is also when the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues will assume operation of CURoots, whose services include shared compliance and specialty internal audit services. All current compliance and audit services/contracts will continue uninterrupted.
All member credit unions of the Leagues will be eligible for CURoots’ preferred member pricing as of March 1, and the $20,000 membership purchase will no longer be required.
“This will minimize the duplication of efforts within the credit union system and furthers the objectives of credit union collaboration,” said Gary Perez, CURoots board chairman and president and CEO of USC Credit Union in Los Angeles, CA.
“We are pleased we can provide our member credit unions in California and Nevada with additional compliance and internal audit solutions, which will complement current League compliance services such as InfoSight, CU PolicyPro, and the Research and Information hotline. Bringing CURoots services under the Leagues will leverage our larger scale and help reduce costs and increase efficiencies,” added Diana Dykstra, Leagues president and CEO.

The Department of Business Oversight (DBO) has standardized electronic forms for weekly and quarterly reporting of local agency deposits and securities, allowing financial institutions to submit their weekly reports to the DBO electronically rather than through the U.S. mail. This change was made possible by Assembly Bill 2298, which took effect Jan. 1.
