The Department of Financial Institutions, in its ongoing commitment to maintain efficient communications with Licensees, is implementing a new practice to routinely communicate information electronically. This new process will rely on communicating via email to Licensees. To accomplish this, the DFI needs to identify a single, standard email address for each Licensee to receive communications from the DFI. The goal is to promote quick, direct communication to an email account that is monitored daily. The DFI will rely on this email address to disseminate information, such as messages and orders from the Commissioner of Financial Institutions, consumer complaint information, and other pertinent information. Your assistance is needed for implementing this process.
To ensure clear and successful communication, please notify DFI of the email address that your institution would like to use for communicating with the DFI. The account should be a separate account that is not tied into an individual name and it should be one that you will be monitoring daily. For your consideration we provide two options:
PLEASE RESPOND BY JANUARY 27, 2010 TO: FYI@DFI.CA.GOV.
Thank you for your cooperation with this important activity. We are confident that the use of electronic communications to you through a single email account will promote faster, effective communications between our organizations.
