    MAAS & MATS Business Implementation Guides updates

    Based on feedback from super funds, we have updated the following Business Implementation Guides (BIGs):

    • Member Account Attribute Service (MAAS) BIG
    • Member Account Transaction Service (MATS) BIG.

    The updates provide better clarity and guidance as you undertake or prepare for your MAAS and MATS deployments. The updates include immaterial changes to:

    • better align the BIGs to the message structure tables on such as the
      • structure and name of data elements
      • codified values
      • inclusion of two MAAS error responses (currently in the message structure table (MST)) that were not reflected in the previous MAAS BIG
    • better align the guidance in both BIGs around default values
    • insert hyperlinks to the new legislative instruments
    • modify some frequently asked questions with updated information
    • add guidance around cancelling transfer balance account reports through MATS where there is no MAAS
    • add guidance around reporting where a member only has one name.

    The Transaction Service Working Group has reviewed the updated BIGs, as per the change control process outlined in CRT Alert 065/2017.
