The five firms vying to develop and operate a central post office disclosure facility are expected to provide cost estimates and details of their proposals to the Muni Council before its next meeting in late May, according to an American Bankers Association official. There has been discussion, but no consensus, on whether the facility should file a material event notice if the issuer fails to file its disclosure documents, Naser said. A repository would be a central post office facility that also stores all of the disclosure documents and allows market participants to search for, and download, those documents. The article goes on to list the finalists for the disclosure facility.
