What kind of scripture is the Naradiyakalpam?

Medieval Sri Vaishnava scholar Vedanta Desika cites this scripture in support of the view that the pranava in the secret Ashtakshara mantra important in Sri Vaishnavism cannot be chanted by women and shudras, but instead should be replaced with an equivalent variant.

Is the Naradiyakalpam a Pancharatra Agama, or is it referring to the Naradiya Purana, or is it referring to the shortened form of the Bhagavata Purana which has the name "Naradiyam"?
