I am compliance officer for a $4.6 billion bank with about 130 branches and several financial subsidiaries (for which I am also responsible for compliance). In our compliance department we perform monitoring, training and other general compliance functions, such as research, consulting, rendering opinions, etc. In addition, we perform the operational functions for data collection, import in to a system and geocoding for CRA and HMDA, and the annual submissions. I am the bank's CRA Officer. Out BSA/AML/CIP Officer is in our department too. We monitor for suspicious activity (soon to be more automated), control the exemption lists, submit all CTR's for the bank, plus other BSA-related activity.
I am looking for information on how other compliance departments are staffed in comparison to bank size. And, what functions are performed in your departments. For example, I know that in some banks, all compliance-related monitoring is conducted by the audit department. Also, in some, all BSA-related activity and the BSA Officer are in a separate department.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
