ARMCO Adds HMDA Questionnaires to ACES IQ
Mar 09, 2020
ACES Risk Management (ARMCO) has announced that it has added questionnaires related to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) to the ACES Intelligent Questionnaire (ACES IQ) functionality

ACES Risk Management (ARMCO) has announced that it has added questionnaires related to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) to the ACES Intelligent Questionnaire (ACES IQ) functionality contained within the ACES Audit Technology system. With this set of HMDA-specific questions, ACES users can quickly and easily conduct quality control on their HMDA data before reporting this data to their assigned federal HMDA regulator.
“With the CFPB’s 2019 HMDA rule changes now firmly in effect, lending institutions have a better idea of where their individual responsibilities reside in regards to HMDA reporting,” ARMCO CEO Trevor Gauthier said. “Given this recent move from yearly to quarterly reporting, ARMCO felt the time was right to introduce HMDA-specific questionnaires to enable our customers to streamline and perfect their data integrity auditing for HMDA.”
These additions are the latest in a series of expansions to the ACES IQ content library designed to enhance the compliance support ARMCO provides to its users. Using both managed and custom quality control audit questions, ACES IQ assists lenders in addressing regulations and guidelines set forth by state and federal regulators, private investors, the GSEs and agencies. The module leverages the loan-level data contained within ACES to quickly isolate desired question sets and answer-based logic to dynamically filter question sets down to the most relevant items, enabling ACES users to cut their review times by up to 50 percent. Last year, the company added more than 4,000 questions to ACES IQ to ensure broad-based coverage of all lending compliance topics, including HMDA, and ease the burden for compliance teams in conducting loan-level reviews.
“Quality control and compliance go hand in hand–you cannot have one without the other,” Gauthier said. “ARMCO has recognized this need from day one and invested considerable resources in proactively building out a compliance library backed by a highly experienced team of compliance experts to ensure the information ARMCO provides to its customers is always up-to-date and comprehensive.”
