The Draft e-GGRT XML reporting schema for Reporting Year 2018 is posted below. There is also a file summarizing the changes between the Reporting Year (RY) 2017 and the RY2018 Annual Report XML schema as well as a technical comparison report. Reports must use the Final RY2018 Annual Report schema for all submissions and resubmissions (i.e., RY2018, RY2017, and prior years) once the RY2018 reporting season begins. Note that the e-GGRT software released in early 2019 for use in RY2018 reporting will only support years RY2013 through RY2018.
The Draft RY2018 Inputs Verifier Tool (IVT) schemas for Subpart C, G, P, V, X, and Y are also posted below. For information on using e-GGRT to upload these IVT files, please refer to Uploading XML submissions with an XML IVT File.
The RY2018 XML schema WILL NOT BECOME EFFECTIVE until e-GGRT is made available for RY2018 reporting.
The information provided on this page is DRAFT . XML-based reporting submitted after e-GGRT is open for RY2018 reporting must be consistent with the FINAL schema.
