Overview – Disruption to Federal Reserve Statistical Reporting

Statistical Reporting collects information that is needed by the Federal Reserve to carry out its monetary policy, supervision and regulation and fiscal agency responsibilities. Reports may be submitted electronically through the Internet or via fax or mail.

Preparing for Statistical Reporting Disruptions

It is important to identify and prepare key personnel (including alternates) in your organization who will be relied upon to supply statistical report data to the Federal Reserve Bank during an emergency. The primary contact information that we have for each institution is taken from the report forms sent to us throughout the year, and it is updated on an ongoing basis. Should you wish a specific person to be your contingency contact person, please send an email informing us of the person's name, telephone number and email address, or provide this information to your regular contact provided in the Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts section.

During a Statistical Reporting Disruption – What to Expect

Federal Reserve Disruption:

For most emergency situations at the Federal Reserve Bank, our back-up and recovery process will allow us to continue operations with minimal interruption.  During a technology system outage, you may be asked to resubmit your reports or submit your reports in another manner. During a local building outage, Federal Reserve staff may be required to relocate; in these instances, your local Reserve Bank will notify you of such a disruption.  Please familiarize yourself with your local Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts

Institution Disruption:

If your institution is experiencing an emergency situation and cannot access statistical reporting applications, the Federal Reserve can offer support:

During a Statistical Reporting Disruption - What You Should Do

Federal Reserve Disruption:

Institutions must continue to submit all statistical reports to the Federal Reserve in compliance with normal deadlines, unless notified by Federal Reserve Statistics staff. If an institution's ability to submit statistical reports is impaired as the result of a technology system outage, each Federal Reserve Bank will review each situation on a case-by-case basis. Depending upon the specific circumstances of the emergency, you may be asked to resubmit reports to the Federal Reserve. If you cannot submit your reports to the Federal Reserve on your regular schedule, please use the contact numbers provided in the Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts section. Unless noted, these continuity numbers remain valid even though Federal Reserve staff has relocated to a contingency site. When we return to normal operations, please return to contacting your Reporting and Reserves District Contacts for statistical report inquiries. You will be notified if any special report submission procedures are necessary.

  • Electronic Submission: Institutions that submit reports electronically should continue to send reports in this manner, unless notified otherwise by Federal Reserve staff. If you have difficulty submitting your reports, please use the contact numbers provided in the Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts section, and be prepared to submit your reports by fax, mail, or telephone.
  • Fax Submission: Institutions that submit reports via fax should continue to send reports in this manner, unless notified otherwise by Federal Reserve staff. If you have difficulty faxing your reports, please use the contact numbers provided in the Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts section.
  • U.S. Mail Submission: Institutions that submit reports via U.S. Mail may continue to send reports in this manner to the regular address.

Institution Disruption

The most appropriate individuals to enact business continuity activities concerning FedLine® electronic access are the End User Authorization Contacts (EUACs). EUACs are responsible for identification, authentication and notification processes between depository institutions and Federal Reserve Banks. To reestablish access to FedLine, an EUAC should contact the CCC at (888) 333-7010, option 1. The CCC staff will assess each institution’s unique need and provide an appropriate solution to reestablish access. If you are unfamiliar with your depository institution’s EUACs, please contact the CCC for assistance in identifying the appropriate individuals.
