SUBJECT: Reports of Condition and Income for Third Quarter 2007
The attached material pertains to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report) for the September 30, 2007, report date. Please plan to complete the preparation, editing, and review of your bank's Call Report data and the submission of these data to the agencies' Central Data Repository (CDR) as early as possible. Starting your preparation early will aid you in identifying and resolving any edit exceptions prior to the submission deadline. If you later find that certain information needs to be revised, please make the appropriate changes to your Call Report data and promptly submit the revised data file to the CDR.
Except for certain banks with foreign offices, your completed Call Report must be received by Tuesday, October 30, 2007, in accordance with the filing requirements discussed below. No extensions of time for submitting Call Report data are granted.
Each bank must file its September 30, 2007, Call Report data in one of the following two ways:
A bank may use computer software to prepare and edit its report data and then electronically submit the data directly to the CDR (https://cdr.ffiec.gov/cdr/).
A bank may complete its report in paper form and arrange with a software vendor or another party to convert its paper report into the electronic format that can be processed by the CDR. The software vendor or other party then must electronically submit the bank's Call Report data file to the CDR.
Electronic submission of Call Report data will be considered timely if the data are received by the CDR no later than Tuesday, October 30, 2007, and pass FFIEC-published validation criteria (validity edits and quality edits) or, where necessary, contain explanations for any quality edits that are not passed. Explanatory comments should be prepared consistent with the "Guidelines for Resolving Edits" that are published on the FFIEC's Web site at http://www.ffiec.gov/find/documents/resolvingedits.pdf - PDF (PDF Help).
A bank that has more than one foreign office, other than a "shell" branch or an International Banking Facility, is permitted an additional five calendar days to submit its Call Report data. Such a bank must electronically transmit its data to the CDR no later than Sunday, November 4, 2007. In addition, on or about each April 30 and October 30, the FDIC conducts a telephone survey of some banks with more than one foreign office to obtain certain deposit data needed to estimate insured deposits.
For technical assistance with the CDR, banks should contact the CDR Help Desk by telephone at (888) CDR 3111, by fax at (301) 495-7864, or by e-mail at CDR.Help@ffiec.gov. For further information concerning the Call Report itself, state member banks should contact their Federal Reserve District Bank. National and FDIC-supervised banks should contact the FDIC's Data Collection and Analysis Section in Washington, D.C., by telephone at (800) 688 FDIC (3342) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
