Fed's IG Says Central Bank Violated Document Rules

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 6:15 PM
The Federal Reserve's inspector general says the Fed violated its own rules for handling sensitive material when it inadvertently issued the minutes of a policy meeting a day before the scheduled release.

The IG's report Thursday recommended procedural changes after the Fed minutes were sent a day early to more than 100 congressional staffers and financial industry lobbyists.

The recipients of the March minutes included congressional staffers and employees of JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs Group, Wells Fargo and other large banks.
