Q4 2019 EQR Date Issue - Because of Daylight Savings Time

Systrends News Bites - Mon, 01/20/2020 - 07:50

If you receive the following error:

Transaction End Date is required, should be in format YYYYMMDDHHMM and should be less than Quarter End and Greater than Begin Date.

and you see that the begin date is 1:55 am (201911030155) and then end date is 1:00 am (or 201911030100) you need to change the end date to end to 2:00 am (201911030200)

Daylight Savings Time ended on November 3rd, 2019 and is causing this issue.

Systrends News Bites - Wed, 12/18/2019 - 11:24

I wanted to let everyone know that Systrends will be sending a representative to the Feb Form Technical Conference in Washington DC.

Systrends has already begun research and development with XBRL format and will build software for the Form 1, Q3 and other forms for Electric, Gas and Oil. 

We may reach out to customers who would be interested in providing us feedback in what type of features they would like to see in the new software. 

Right now we need to wait for the technical conference and final rule from FERC

 

Thank You

eForms Solution - Coming Soon

Systrends News Bites - Thu, 06/20/2019 - 08:46

FERC Acts to Modernize Process for Filing Commission Forms
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is revising its electronic filing format for certain data collections to make it easier for filers to submit and data users to analyze information. By modernizing FERC’s data collections and making them more accessible, today’s final rule will increase efficiency in regulatory filings and business information processing, further the goal of transparency, and decrease the costs, over time, of preparing the necessary data for
submission.

The rule adopts eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL), a nonproprietary, open technology standard, as the new filing format. XBRL will enhance system compatibility and security, and allow efficient sharing of data across different information systems. Industry groups broadly supported the move to the new standard, which will be used for
filing Form Nos. 1, 1-F, 2, 2-A, 3-Q electric, 3-Q natural gas, 6, 6-Q, 60 and 714.

The next step is for FERC staff to develop a draft XBRL taxonomy that will be discussed at a future technical conference. The Commission will collect additional comments before issuing a subsequent order to adopt the final standard and establish an implementation schedule.

Systrends will be attending the Technical Conference and will also be building software to help with the Form Filing Process in XBRL.

New Begin/End Date Validation in EQR

Systrends News Bites - Wed, 10/24/2018 - 08:29

To All EQR User:

FERC is apparently now allowing the same begin and end date for transactions less than 1 minute (since there are no seconds listed in the time column the number in the columns looks the same).

This means that your data can have a begin date of 090120181200 and an end date of the same exact number 090120181200

This is going to make it difficult to see if this is an error or a transaction less than 1 minute.

I am warning all users of this because while we have changed the software to allow the same begin/end dates (because I know of one customer that needs it), there is NO WARNING for it in the software right now. Adding the warning is going to take some time and won’t be completed until after this quarter.

Please check your dates carefully to make sure that all the transactions that are greater than 1 min have the correct end time.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
