§ 420.4 Recordkeeping.
(a)
(1) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs (b) and (c) of this section, an aggregating entity must make and maintain records pursuant to this part as of its effective date, but only if the aggregating entity has controlled a portion of its reporting entity's reportable position in any Treasury security when such reportable position of the reporting entity has equaled or exceeded the minimum large position threshold specified in § 420.2(d) (i.e., $2 billion) during the prior two-year period ending December 11, 1996. Subsequent to the effective date, an aggregating entity that controls a portion of its reporting entity's reportable position in a recently-issued Treasury security, when such reportable position of the reporting entity equals or exceeds the minimum large position threshold, shall be responsible for making and maintaining the records prescribed in this section.
(2) In the case of a reporting entity whose reportable position in any Treasury security has equaled or exceeded the minimum large position threshold during the prior two-year period ending December 11, 1996, each such reporting entity's designated filing entity shall submit a letter to the Government Securities Regulations Staff, Bureau of the Public Debt, 999 E Street, N.W., Room 515, Washington, DC 20239, stating that the designated filing entity has in place, or will have in place by the effective date, a recordkeeping system (including policies and procedures) capable of making, verifying the accuracy of, and preserving the records required pursuant to this section. The letter shall further state that, after reasonable inquiry and to the best of its knowledge and belief, the designated filing entity represents that all other aggregating entities have in place, or will have in place by the effective date, a system (including policies and procedures) capable of making, verifying the accuracy of, and preserving the records required pursuant to this section.
(3) The letter specified in paragraph (a)(2) of this section must be signed by one of the following: the chief compliance officer; chief legal officer; chief financial officer; chief operating officer; chief executive officer; or managing partner or equivalent. The letter must be received by the Bureau of the Public Debt no later than January 10, 1997.
(b) Records to be made and preserved by entities that are subject to the recordkeeping provisions of the Commission, the Department, or the appropriate regulatory agencies for financial institutions. As an aggregating entity, compliance by a registered broker or dealer, registered government securities broker or dealer, noticed financial institution, depository institution that exercises investment discretion, registered investment adviser, or registered investment company with the applicable recordkeeping provisions of the Commission, the Department, or the appropriate regulatory agencies for financial institutions shall constitute compliance with this section, provided that if such entity is also the designated filing entity it:
(1) Makes and keeps copies of all large position reports filed pursuant to this part;
(2) Makes and keeps supporting documents or schedules used to compute data for the large position reports filed pursuant to this part, including any certifications or schedules it receives from aggregating entities pertaining to their holdings of a reportable position;
(3) Makes and keeps a chart showing the organizational entities that are aggregated (if applicable) in determining a reportable position; and
(4) With respect to recordkeeping preservation requirements that contain more than one retention period, preserves records required by paragraphs (b)(1)-(3) of this section for the longest record retention period of applicable recordkeeping provisions.
(c) Records to be made and kept by other entities. (1) An aggregating entity that is not subject to the provisions of paragraph (b) of this section shall make and preserve a journal, blotter, or other record of original entry containing an itemized record of all transactions that fall within the definition of a reportable position, including information showing the account for which such transactions were effected and the following information pertaining to the identification of each instrument: the type of security, the par amount, the CUSIP number, the trade date, the maturity date, the type of transaction (e.g., a reverse repurchase agreement), and the name or other designation of the person from whom sold or purchased.
(2) If such aggregating entity is also the designated filing entity, then in addition, it shall make and preserve the following records:
(i) Copies of all large position reports filed pursuant to this part;
(ii) Supporting documents or schedules used to compute data for the large position reports filed pursuant to this part, including any certifications or schedules it receives from aggregating entities pertaining to their holdings of a reportable position; and
(iii) A chart showing the organizational entities that are aggregated (if applicable) in determining a reportable position.
(3) With respect to the records required by paragraphs (c) (1) and (2) of this section, each such aggregating entity shall preserve such records for a period of not less than six years, the first two years in an easily accessible place. If an aggregating entity maintains its records at a location other than its principal place of business, the aggregating entity must maintain an index that states the location of the records, and such index must be easily accessible at all times.
