The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve discontinued the Report of Repurchase Agreements (RPs) on U.S. Government and Federal Agency Securities with Specified Holders (FR 2415; OMB No. 7100-0074) in March 2006. In November 2005, the Federal Reserve decided to cease collecting, constructing, and publishing the M3 monetary aggregate, effective in March 2006. As a result of the Federal Reserve's decision to cease constructing the M3 monetary aggregate, data collected on the FR 2415 are no longer needed.
This voluntary report collected one data item, RPs, in denominations of $100,000 or more, in immediately available funds, on U.S. government and federal agency securities, transacted with specified holders. Depository institutions filed the FR 2415 report weekly, quarterly, or annually, depending on the volume of their RPs. The primary use of the data was to construct the RP component of the M3 monetary aggregate. The data were also used for analysis of depository institutions' funding practices.
The analysis of bank liability management can be adequately handled by liabilities reported on the Weekly Report of Assets and Liabilities for Large Banks (FR 2416; OMB No. 7100-0075); Weekly Report of Selected Assets (FR 2644; OMB No. 7100-0075); and Weekly Report of Assets and Liabilities for Large U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks (FR 2069; OMB No. 7100-0030) (bank credit reports).
