9 CRI – Improving Reviews ED Lender Review Guide is base document for CRI review protocol CRI review teams would test additional attributes not contained in Guide CRI reviews would not test LaRS Proposal calls for ED to test this CRI reviews would track findings back to LaRS where adjustments are necessary

10 CRI Review Selection CRI reviews would be conducted at lenders/servicers required to be reviewed by at least four guarantors Servicer reviews would apply to all lenders contracting with that servicer
