The second year of the SEC mandate proved much harder the first year. Detail tagging takes a lot of work, and a lot of communication with the service provider. Luckily, Deloitte has performed Agreed-upon Procedures on the filing before submitting it to the SEC. We will demonstrate our lessons learned and our suggested improvements for next year.
