  • Technology Service Provider Supervision – supervises regional technology service providers;
  • Thrift Supervision – ensures the OCC maintains balanced, consistent interpretation and application of supervisory policies and OCC regulations for federal savings associations; and
  • Special Supervision – supervises the OCC's most critical problem banks and develops and implements rehabilitation or resolution strategies.
