The first application is widely used within the industry, and it can be even more useful with XBRL.FDIC, FRB and OCC have made significant commitment in time and resources to make this work and we are in agreement for its use.We are collaborating and participating with a wide audience of stakeholders that affects not just the regulators. Bankers, Wall Street Analysts, software vendors and consumers.COMPONENTS:Standards include accounting standards, electronic dictionaries already in place, and reporting standards.The XBRL specification is in second release and FDIC is playing a significant role in advancing its rules.Momentum: The FDIC, FRB and OCC have been working on the business application to be discussed today for over two years and the FDIC has been an active member of XBRL for almost two years.Regulatory reporting processes have problems in each step from developing the reports to integrating the results that XBRL can help resolve.FDICs Chairman Don Powell has provided FDIC with an aggressive target when he stated earlier this year that he wanted real time Call Report data. Transition: Call Reports is the first application targeted to use XBRL.Call Reports is the first application for XBRL where we believe it will meet a concrete business needFDIC heavily relies upon Call Reports for:Other stakeholders including the FRB, OCC, banks and Wall Street analysts use it.We are working toward modernizing the whole processCall Report is a:As one of the beneficiaries, FDIC has taken the lead in preparing and planning to use XBRLFDIC is.The FDIC, (next slide)FRB and OCC are all direct beneficiaries and collaborating to make it happen.Consumers benefit because we will have better information to manage risks of the banking industry.As a result of our collaborative efforts, we have accomplished to date the following:Proof of concept used as a basis to get consensus and commitment to use XBRL for Call Report processing.The validation criteria was in MS Word early this year, which made it very difficult to use by programmers. MS Excel is a step forward, but still lacks all the benefits of XBRL.Expect to complete analysis of the data in four to six weeks.This is a mock up screen. Under construction This becomes the form and tool for Call Report analysts from each agency to update and develop Call Report taxonomiesThis becomes the tool to create the reporting form think data, metadata, not rigid forms.The art work of the forms is no longer important and we can put less emphasis on the form and more on the content. Function over formIn the long term, I can envision this tool being modified to include a myriad of current forms into a more complete view and management of regulatory reportsRecall the definition of framework is important because it will be used often throughout rest of the presentationAnd the definition of an instance document as an output file.The architectural view of the XBRL Call Report Framework includes the FRB MDRM data dictionary for regulatory reports. Which will be a key taxonomy a master taxonomy.The National Information Center data from the FRB is also going to be used as master taxonomy for demographic information.The other taxonomies include:Banks will submit their quarterly Call Reports as an XBRL instance document that will be sent to a central processing site via the Internet.Since we are including all the other report form data elements from the MDRM data dictionary, in our architecture, we are designing a long term US Bank Regulatory Reporting Framework.As additional piece of FDICs collaborative efforts, a XBRL Framework for the Bank and Savings Industry in underway.E&Y leading this effort.FDIC hosted a two day meeting to help getting it started.If bankers use the BASI for management reporting:They can reuse to map data from BASI taxonomy to Call Report taxonomyData quality likely to be higher, since used internally by bankersData collection burden by bankers could be reduced also.The XBRL Call Report Framework, US Bank Regulatory Framework and BASI and fits within a larger construct of national and international taxonomies and frameworks under development.Rob Blake, the next speaker, will be talking in more detail about NAFR.To just highlight one point, that the accounting industry and XBRL members are developing a an overarching set of taxonomies financial terms that the banking industry and regulators can take advantage of.In pursuing a challenging project such as this, we want the most bang for the buck. That is why we working on as many XBRL taxonomy fronts as possible.These common set of terms from these taxonomies can be shared by multiple entities for multiple purposes.Banks can use the terms for internal reportingWhich can feed information for regulatory reportsLike Call ReportsTimelines for the taxonomies and frameworks mentioned include:NAFR I wont steal Robs thunder so I will let him tell you about the release date.The BASI as mentioned is expected by year end. Participation by the banking industry is certainly welcome.Call Report taxonomies for eight periods is due by year end, with the March 2002 set of taxonomies due in about two weeks.Implementations:One key one is the APRA rolloutSimilar to us, with a little twist. They developed an application and distributed it to their constituents. We are sending out the reporting requirements to be integrated into Call Report software vendors products and to bankers to be used in their systems.The FFIEC Call Report processing using XBRL is anticipated first quarter 2004.By either using the BASI or mapping back end systems to the XBLRized Call Report software, banks can automate some or perhaps all of the process of completing a Call Report.Think out of the box and develop specialized edits, etc.Analysts can do more or do it better because of the quality, timeliness and improved comparability of data that XBRLized Call Reports would provide. We then can rely more upon if for off site monitoring. Over time we could take the Bank Regulatory Reporting Framework farther and begin to think more about data instead of forms.This frees us to think about possibly integrating reports and holistically viewing the frequency of reports for instance.
