‘We are looking intensively at the firms' policies, procedures, and internal controls related to foreclosures and seeking to determine whether systematic weaknesses are leading to improper foreclosures,’ Bernanke said at a housing-finance conference co-sponsored by the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Bernanke said that federal agency staff members are currently evaluating the potential effects of procedural problems on the real estate market and financial institutions.
