Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit received a favorable review in an external study examining his role as the bank's head, sources close to Pandit told CNBC.
Over the summer, the government hired Egon Zehnder to evaluate Pandit and his management team.
Pandit had received a lot of criticism as to whether he should have unwound Citigroup's empire much sooner since taking the CEO position in 2008.
Citi's board is expected to release some or all of the details from the report.
