    BREAKING NEWS! SEPT 2020

    GAO was asked to review the BSA’s implementation. This report examines (1) the extent to which law enforcement uses BSA reports and FinCEN facilitates their use, (2) selected banks’ BSA compliance costs, (3) oversight of banks’ BSA compliance, and (4) stakeholder views of proposed changes to the BSA. GAO surveyed personnel at six federal law enforcement agencies, collected data on BSA compliance costs from 11 banks, reviewed FinCEN data on banking agencies’ BSA examinations, and interviewed law enforcement and industry stakeholders on the effects of proposed changes.
