DRAFT EDGAR N-MFP1 XML Technical Specification (Version 1.1)

Implementation Date: June 13, 2016

This draft EDGAR Form N-MFP1 XML Technical Specification, posted before Commission approval of potential regulatory changes in this release, is provided as a service to our filing community to assist filers, agents, and software developers in their preparation of responses to potential changes the staff anticipates. Since this is a draft technical specification, the SEC retains the right to change any part of the technical specification before the new system release is made final. In addition, the final EDGAR Form N-MFP1 XML Technical Specification is subject to Commission approval and may be revised before approval or not approved at all. Similarly, the posting of the draft technical specification does not indicate Commission approval of any pending proposed changes relating to the potential changes reflected in the draft technical specification. The changes outlined in this draft technical specification, if approved, are scheduled to take effect on June 13, 2016. The final version of the technical specification will be made available if approved by the Commission on or about June 13, 2016, on the SEC's Public Website.

The N-MFP1 submission file must conform to the EDGAR N-MFP1 Submission Taxonomy. This taxonomy is comprised of a collection of XML Schema Definition (.xsd) files that define the structures of EDGAR N-MFP1 submissions. The N-MFP1 XML submissions can be transmitted to the SEC via the EDGAR FilerWeb (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov/) or the "Transmit XML Submission" option from the EDGAR OnlineForms/XML Website (https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov).

On June 13, 2016, EDGAR Release 16.2 will introduce the following changes::

  • In section 3.4 the max length for the element "numberOfSharesOutstanding" has been changed from 14 to 16. Filers must report at least two decimal places, but this also allows filers to report with up to four decimal places for shares outstanding on items A.17 and B.4.
  • In section 3.4 the elements "totalValueDailyLiquidAssets", "percentageDailyLiquidAssets", and "dailyLiquidAssetSecurityFlag" for Item A.13 part a, Item A.13 part c. and Item C.21 have been changed from mandatory to optional.
  • In section 3.4 the data type for the element "totalValueOfFundPosition" was changed to static, and thus removed from the table.
