Lending Stage: 

This Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) contains on-site review procedures for all types of SBA Lenders participating in SBA’s 7(a) and 504 loan programs. It defines the on-site risk-based review conducted of 7(a) Lenders and CDCs, depending upon their level of lending activity. It also defines the more comprehensive safety and soundness examination conducted of those 7(a) Lenders that are SBA Supervised Lenders, which is also dependent upon the level of lender activity as well as other regulatory control.
