Trust Account Financial Management
Responsibility for tracking, managing and reporting for the funds identified on Slide 5 has been recently transferred from Denver to Indianapolis.
The tracking and management of these funds are being maintained on a sub-standard system, not suitable for the value and importance of these assets, as these funds total approximately $700 million. The present system is well below the standards for government accountability, and specifically, well below DoD standards.
There are no controls to verify the accuracy of the transactions.
There are no checks and balances for verification of the throughput of the entries.
The results of the transactions are not auditable. There is no audit trail or transaction register to identify or analyze the accumulated totals.
The system is extremely unreliable and unstable and produces unpredictable and unexplainable results, with no capability to ascertain the reason or remedy to correct.
The system does not have the ability to produce financial statements.
The system cannot produce mandatory reports, such as 224, 133, etc.
The present system is incapable of interfacing with feeder systems to automatically incorporate payments and other transactions made on behalf of the funds.Background
A replacement system should have a history of successfully accommodating these types of funds in a federal environment.
The system should be in accordance with generally accepted government standards.
The system should contain the proper management controls to assure the accuracy of the transactions.
The system should be able to produce financial and mandatory reports, and be customizable to accommodate the needs of the users, including the ability of automatically producing consolidated financial statements
The system should produce an audit trail and a transaction register to allow auditors to trace summary totals back through to the original source documents.
The system should provide security controls that allow for the profiling of users to meet separation of duties internal control requirements.
The system should allow for import and export of data from feeder systems and upload data to parent organizations in a format that will be in accordance with that organization’s accounting standards.
The system should accommodate work flow capabilities to properly notify and route documents to the next processing individual.Trust Fund Requirements

The Orion Fund Management System supports all the funds management functions of the Federal Government.
All fund transactions are assigned a fund classification structure. This structure is recorded when each document is processed. Orion performs a funds control check at each stage of spending to ensure that there is funding available. Any adjustment to documents processed at each stage of the spending cycle is immediately reflected in the appropriate budget balances and in the fund ledgers.
Orion permits authorized users to create and modify the level of funds control to provide the greatest level of control and flexibility to the user. Thus, funds can be economically and efficiently managed; obligation, expenditures, commitments or disbursement cannot exceed the amount authorized/available.
Funds control is established using elements of the classification structure, including object class, program, organization, project and fund to assure compliance with user defined requirements.
Orion performs funds control checks at each stage of the spending cycle (commitment, obligation, invoicing, vouching and payment.)Orion Fund Management System
