The Draft e-GGRT XML schema for Reporting Year 2020 is posted below. There is also a file summarizing the changes between the Reporting Year (RY) 2019 and the RY2020 Annual Report XML schema as well as a technical comparison report. Facilities must use the Final RY2020 Annual Report schema for all submissions and resubmissions (i.e., RY2020, RY2019, and prior years) once the RY2020 reporting season begins. Note that the e-GGRT software released in early 2021 for use in RY2020 reporting will only support years RY2015 through RY2020.
The Draft RY2020 Inputs Verifier Tool (IVT) schema is also posted below; it is unchanged since RY2017. For information on using e-GGRT to upload these IVT files, please refer to Uploading XML submissions with an XML IVT File.
The RY2020 XML schema WILL NOT BECOME EFFECTIVE until e-GGRT is made available for RY2020 reporting.
The information provided on this page is DRAFT . XML-based reporting submitted after e-GGRT is open for RY2020 reporting must be consistent with the FINAL schema.
