The Office of Thrift Supervision is providing new software to help the institutions it oversees prepare regulatory reports electronically.
The program, from DPSC Software Inc., Calabasas, Calif., is an updating of the one the OTS gave thrifts in 1993 when electronic reports were first required.
The banking agencies are not giving free software to banks, which must start submitting quarterly call reports electronically this year.
The OTS also issued a new fact book on the thrift industry. While the publication contains a wealth of industry statistics-some dating from as far back as 1940-it only incorporates data through 1995.
The data are available at the OTS Internet site, www.ots.treas.gov. Requests for a hard copy can also be faxed to 202-906-7755 or E-mailed to public.info ots.treas.gov.
