A Multiyear Conversion Effort is Underway to Replace IESUB wih the Reporting Central Application

In early 2011, the Federal Reserve Banks began undertaking a multi-year initiative to enhance reporting capabilities. Beginning in early 2012, a new reporting application, Reporting Central, will begin to replace the IESUB system.

The Reporting Central application will provide a more secure, technically advanced and efficient system that will be a single point of entry for Federal Reserve, Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury electronic reports submission and file uploads.

The links below provide more information about this conversion effort:

IESUB User Guides

The User Guides below provide the required file formats for submitting data via Internet Electronic Submission (IESUB), demonstrate how a reporting institution can create the file from a spreadsheet and information to assist reporting institutions in resolving problems they might have when submitting the spreadsheet file.

Spreadsheet File Transfer

If you are currently using a spreadsheet (e.g., Microsoft Excel® or Lotus 123) to prepare your data, you can use IESUB to easily transmit your file to the Federal Reserve. Initially, you will need to include in your spreadsheet data the report name, report as-of date, etc. You then create a formula in one cell of your spreadsheet to pull in the data. Once that is completed, save it as a text file and submit it via IESUB to the Federal Reserve. For step-by-step instructions, see the following guides:

File Transfer

If you are currently transmitting your report via the FedLine® access solution, you now can transmit it via IESUB. The file transfer option is compatible with many vendor-developed deposit and regulatory reporting applications. IESUB will accept the file created by your vendor software, provide you with a receipt containing the date and time IESUB received the file and forward it to the Federal Reserve. To use this option, simply click on the File Transfer button on the IESUB home page, enter the file name with the .txt extension and click Submit File.

For more details, see the File Transfer User Guide (PDF).
