The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, at its board meeting in Orlando this week, plans to discuss a handful of big-ticket projects it is currently developing, including the new issue information dissemination system, or NIIDS, that is to begin operating June 30, MSRB executive director Lynnette Hotchkiss said yesterday.

The board will also discuss the municipal Edgar system, which the board is developing and plans to begin hosting by as early as the end of the year. Hotchkiss said the board has recently hired outside consultants to help design the look and feel of the system, and is also close to selecting a formal name for it.
