The Raw CD statistics used to generate the weekly rate cap information for the week of January 7, 2019.

I’m pretty surprised by this response, I would have thought that the FDIC obtained these statistics in order to generate the rate cap information. Can you provide any more information about how these records are controlled/processed so I can know how best to proceed from here?
I left a voicemail on Friday in case you get to that first,
