The Fed has added new features to its Internet Electronic Submission (IESUB) web site. Depository institutions now can load data for the FR 2900 "Report of Transaction Accounts, Other Deposits and Vault Cash" from their spreadsheet files directly to the web page.
This change eliminates the need to re-enter the information. Institutions can also add specific remarks about the data submission or give feedback about the web site.
To sign up for Internet reporting or learn more about the enhancements, contact Robin Miller at (314) 444-8554, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The recently revised Directory of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis is now available.

To order copies of the directory, call Tracie Mueller at (314) 444-8810.
