PRA109 – Operational Continuity Reporting on Gabriel

BOE Logo

PRA109 – Operational Continuity Reporting (required by operational continuity firms) is required to be in XBRL format for submission on the Gabriel system starting from the 1 January 2019. Operational continuity firm means a firm that the Operational Continuity Part of the PRA Rulebook applies.

The template should be completed by an operational continuity firm annually. If the operational continuity firm uses more than one group provider then it is expected to identify each group provider within the same template. If a group includes more than one operational continuity firm, a template should be completed by each operational continuity firm. One operational continuity firm can submit templates to the PRA on behalf of other operational continuity firms.

The templates are structured in four parts:

  • Part 1: Operational costs – This part sets out the annual costs associated with carrying on the operational activities of the group provider(s) with which the operational continuity firm has a service arrangement.
  • Part 2: Financial resilience – This part summarises the liquidity resource amount held to meet the expectation in paragraph 5.5 of SS9/16 in respect of each group provider with which the operational continuity firm has a service arrangement.
  • Part 3: Financial resilience resources – This part summarises the amount, type and location of the liquidity resources that each group provider has to meet the liquidity resource expectation for provision of critical services to the operational continuity firm.
  • Part 4: Recharge cost – This part identifies the annual costs of services charged from the group provider back to entities within the group and vice versa (including, but not limited to, the operational continuity firm).


The taxonomy, data point model (DPM) dictionary, annotated templates and validation rules cover the requirements for financial statements as set out in PS36/16 ‘Financial statements – responses to Chapter 3 of CP17/16’ , which takes effect from 1 January 2018.

It also covers the requirements for Capital+ Reporting as set out in PS32/16 ‘Responses to Chapter 3 of CP17/16 – forecast capital data’, which takes effect from 1 October 2017.

Capital+ Taxonomy and DPM in DPM Authority
CRD IV Taxonomy Representation in Report Authority


DPM Authority presents individual DPM templates as XBRL tagged tables as described by the XBRL taxonomy.


DPM Authority can generate and link to Excel versions of the DPM templates. These workbooks can be used to automate reported data points using calculations and linking to external data sources for automatic importing into DPM Authority.

Interactive Validation Results


XBRL validation failure messages are typically very difficult to understand and to resolve. DPM authority helps the user by presenting each failure in a number of different ways. Each message is interactive where clicking on a failure will highlight the data points contributing to the issue in the user interface.


DPM Authority is the only Capital+ tool that can integrate natively with Oracle EPM (HFM, Planning and Essbase).  EPM dimensions and their members are listed in the automation panel and can be dragged and dropped onto individual cells, entire rows, columns or sheets.  It couldn’t be simpler.
