The superintendent shall designate a deputy superintendent to perform the duties of the superintendent whenever the superintendent is absent from the State; a deputy superintendent is directed to do so by the superintendent; there is a vacancy in the office of superintendent; or the superintendent is incapacitated by illness.

2. Examiners and employees. 
A. The superintendent may employ personnel as the business of the bureau may require, subject to the commissioner's approval and in accordance with the Civil Service Law. The qualifications of those personnel must reflect the needs and responsibilities relating to the bureau's regulatory functions pursuant to this Title. The superintendent may authorize senior personnel of the bureau to carry out the superintendent's duties and authority. [1995, c. 502, Pt. H, §4 (AMD).]

3. Training of bureau personnel.  At the expense of the bureau, the superintendent may train the deputy superintendents and bureau's employees, or have them trained, in a manner the superintendent determines desirable; however training programs may not place such undue emphasis upon safety and soundness of financial institutions that institutions would be inhibited by the bureau from engaging in unusual activities or loans that are in the public interest.
[ 2007, c. 79, §3 (AMD) .]
4. Contracts with other state and federal regulatory agencies.  The superintendent may employ and engage experts, professionals or other personnel of other state and federal regulatory agencies as may be necessary to assist the bureau in carrying out its regulatory functions.
