AGENCY: Small Business Administration (SBA).

ACTION: Interim Final Rule with request for comments.

SUMMARY: This interim final rule incorporates SBA’s risk-based lender oversight program into SBA regulations. Specifically, the rule codifies in SBA regulations SBA’s process of risk-based oversight including: Accounting and reporting requirements; off-site reviews/monitoring; on-site reviews and examinations; and capital adequacy requirements. It also codifies SBA Supervised Lender regulation and updates SBA’s business loan program regulations to specify program standards. Finally, the rule lists the types of, grounds for, and procedures governing SBA enforcement actions against 7(a) Lenders, Certified Development Companies, Microloan Intermediaries, and Non-Lending Technical Assistance Providers within consolidated enforcement regulations. SBA previously published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) addressing all of the topics and issues covered by this interim final rule. SBA has already allowed for public comment, reviewed the comments and made changes accordingly. SBA is publishing this rule interim final rather than proceeding to a final rule, however,
in order to provide the public with an additional opportunity to comment andto allow for any necessary adjustments as the industry moves through the economic cycle.
