ALEXANDRIA, Va. (10/23/14)--To assist small credit unions with researching credit union vendors and service providers, the National Credit Union Administration's Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (OSCUI) will soon launch a service on its website.
Called the CUSP (Credit Union Service Providers), the resource aims to save time and cost for small credit unions looking to expand or maintain their services.
"We're piloting this service to help you generate time- and cost-efficient leads for delivering member services. Through this service credit unions can obtain contact information on registered vendors that serve credit unions," reads the program introduction in this month's FOCUS e-newsletter from OSCUI.
According to the NCUA, the information in the CUSP is "unbiased and permits access to all registered vendors." Use of the vendor data is free, and so is registration for vendors. OSCUI recommends credit unions contact their preferred vendors to encourage them to register.
CUSP is currently open for vendor registration, and the website is expected to officially launch for credit unions in November.
