Contingency Funding Plan: A credit union must have a written CFP commensurate with its complexity, risk profile, and scope of operations that sets out strategies for addressing liquidity shortfalls in emergency situations. The CFP may be a separate policy or may be incorporated into an existing policy such as an asset/liability policy, a funds management policy, or a business continuity policy. The CFP must address, at a minimum, the following:
(1) The sufficiency of the institution's liquidity sources to meet normal operating requirements as well as contingent events;
(2) The identification of contingent liquidity sources;
(3) Policies to manage a range of stress environments, identification of some possible stress events, and identification of likely liquidity responses to such events;
(4) Lines of responsibility within the institution to respond to liquidity events;
(5) Management processes that include clear implementation and escalation procedures for liquidity events; and
(6) The frequency that the institution will test and update the plan.
