Statistical Reporting collects information that is needed by the Federal Reserve to carry out its monetary policy, supervision, and fiscal agency responsibilities. Reports may be submitted electronically through the Internet or via fax or mail.
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 a contingency situation, e.g., a weather emergency or electrical outage. 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, whose contact information is provided in the Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts section.
For most emergency situations at the Federal Reserve Bank, our back-up and recovery processes 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.
If your institution is experiencing a contingency situation and cannot access statistical reporting applications, the Federal Reserve can offer support:
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 institution’s situation on a case-by-case basis. Depending upon the specific circumstances of the contingency, 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 contact and inform your Federal Reserve Reporting and Reserves Business Continuity Contacts. Unless noted, these continuity numbers remain valid even though Federal Reserve staff have relocated to a contingency site. You will be notified if any special report submission procedures are necessary.
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 needs 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.
