Federal banking regulators have compiled a list of 250 service providers and software vendors that they have examined and graded for year-2000 readiness.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the first agency to make the reports available, said state nonmember banks may request copies as long as they have a contractual relationship with the vendor. Possible grades for a firm include "satisfactory," "needs improvement," and "unsatisfactory." The FDIC did not release a breakdown of the ratings earned by the 250 firms.
