  4. Rules for Webinar Please mute your phone Ask questions through the live chat only – please do NOT take your phone off mute Most questions will be answered at the end of the presentation OR via the interactive (live) chat If your question is not answered during the Webinar, a GTAS representative will respond to your question via email by the end of the next business day

  5. Why is FMS building GTAS? • Improve the quality of financial data by combining budgetary and proprietary trial balance reporting, enforcing the USSGL, and implementing new edits and validations • Streamline agency reporting from 16 segmented trial balances to 7 combined trial balances • Replace legacy systems (FACTS I, FACTS II, IRAS, IFCS) • Implement data standardization

  6. GTAS Facts • Bulk File Only • A full budgetary and proprietary trial balance • Daily interfaces with GWA Central Accounting System for balance and transaction data • Open 24x7 for agency use • Required reporting 7 months per year (per the new OMB requirement) • GTAS goes live on December 2012 for November reporting!!!

  7. FMS Standardization (FADS) and the CFO Letter (f.k.a CGAC) January 14 CFO Letter … “In order to achieve governmentwide benefits and efficiencies, all Federal agencies will be required by October 1, 2014 to submit TAS/BETC information on all transaction types (IPAC, Payments, Collections).” How does this impact my GTAS reporting in 2013? GTAS will only accept the FADS (CGAC) TAS, per the FMS Standardization (CGAC) guidelines There is no “phase-in” timeframe for GTAS. GTAS will only accept a 6-digit USSGL account All other data elements collected on the bulk file must be compliant with all GTAS documentation How do I know what my new TAS is?

  8. Mandatory USSGL Compliance • GTAS will implement USSGL tie points (budgetary and proprietary edits) as non-fatal in 2013 • Total of 50+ validations and 77 accounting edits in GTAS • GTAS will produce the USSGL TFM starting in 2013 • The 2013 TFM will include more detailed information, including the allowable domain values for each attribute/USSGL account relationship, new sections for validations and edits, SMAF, and bulk file format

  9. Long Term Plans for GTAS Data • Identify material differences between receipts and revenues • Identify differences between quarterly financial statements provided to OMB and trial balances • At year-end, identify differences between agency financial statements in GFRS and trial balances

  10. Update -Trading Partner Main Account On Proprietary USSGLs • TP main account will be phased-in • FY 2013: TP main account may be reported but not required • FY 2014: TP main account required for TAS with 2014 beginning period of availability and X year TAS activity that occurred in 2014. Trading partner main account is not required but may be reported for activity that occurred prior to 2013. • FY 2015 through 2018: each year TP main account will be required for another period of availability. • FY 2019: TP main account required for all TAS including X year.

  11. Update - The Canceled TAS for Reporting Assets The requirements have changed for the ‘C” TAS: • If you are using a default fund symbol of your own creation, you must use the new "C" account in its place. • If you are using a current year fund symbol or an "X" fund or some other variation of a real account, you may continue. • You may also decide on your own when to move these assets from the original purchasing fund.

  12. Update -Year End Transaction Processing Effective FY 2013 agencies will no longer cancel balances or adjust indefinite authority via the FMS 2108. Cancellations and balance adjustments related to indefinite appropriation authority will be initiated and completed by the agency in the Agency Transaction Module (ATM). Does not include cancellation of balances for TAS with the X availability type, partial cancellations, or TAS with extended disbursing authority ATM will be available for year end transactions for fiscal 2013 in October 2013. The window will open after the 224 reporting for September has been completed. If the year end transactions are not completed before the GTAS ATB is submitted, the GTAS ATB will fail edits. 12

  13. ReportingWindows OMB Circular A-11 Update: The frequency of reporting FACTS II \ SF 133 information will increase from four times a year to seven times a year effective FY 2012. The additional reporting will take place for the months ending November, July, and August. Agencies will use FACTS II to submit the additional information the same way they now submit their quarterly information. How does this affect GTAS reporting for FY 2013? GTAS reporting will be due seven times a year. GTAS will go live in December 2012!!!

  14. Super Master Account File (SMAF) Includes TAS level attributes and balances for each TAS. Provided by Treasury Available to agencies via GTAS on a daily basis Changes made in the Central Accounting and Reporting System CARS (f. k. a. GWAMP) will be reflected in the SMAF after the daily update from CARS. Info will be used to validate and edit trial balances. 14

  15. SMAF Change – BEA Category • Expenditure and receipt TASs have a BEA category on the SMAF • The BEA values on the SMAF are: N - Net Interest {New} G – Governmental Receipts {New} D – Discretionary M – Mandatory S – Split Blank • Values G (Governmental Receipts) and N (Net Interest) apply to receipt TAS except for a few Treasury expenditure TAS that have BEA net interest. The Treasury TAS will report BEA M on the bulk file. • No change to the bulk file. Agencies will continue to report D (discretionary) and M (mandatory) for the expenditure TAS.

  16. Bulk File Update • Apportionment Category B Program Code • Effective FY 2103 OMB is aligning the Apportionment Category B Program Code to the 6000 series line numbers on the SF 132. • Effective 2013 the Category B Program Code reported on the GTAS bulk file will be four digits. • Acceptable bulk file values are 6011-6159. • Apportionment Category A/B • Apportions budgetary resources by a combination of fiscal quarters and projects. • Is new for FY 2012 and used on the SF 132. • No change to the GTAS bulk file. Agencies that have apportionment category A/B will report category B in GTAS.

  17. Bulk File Update • Borrowing Source • Values are T (Treasury), F ( Federal Financing Bank), P (Public) • Added to USSGLs 214100 and 631000 • Used with edits that bring IFCS functionality into GTAS • Federal Non Federal Code • General Fund (G) {NEW} • If Federal/Non Federal Code is G, use agency ID 099 and main account 0000 for the trading partner reporting. • New!: USSGL 101000 requires G

  18. Bulk File Upload Data Verification The following checks are done on each row of the bulk file before validations and edits are run: • Is it a valid TAS? (TAS must exist in CARS or be a canceled TAS) • Are the Fiscal Year and Reporting Period correct (and identical) on each row? • Is the TAS assigned to the user who is uploading the data? • Is the bulk file format correct? (Text file with correct length – see Bulk File Format document on GTAS web site.) • Are there duplicated lines? (2 or more lines on the file are identical) • Is the date consistent with the Program Reporting category and Apportionment Category B rules?

  19. Validations • Check each attribute included in a row on the bulk file ensuring that the attributes reported are valid for the USSGL account (per the attribute table). • May be simple (involves 1 USSGL attribute) or special (involves 2 or more attributes). • All validations are fatal.

  20. Trading Partner Reporting for the Budgetary USSGLs • Fed/NFed Indicator is required on budgetary unfilled customer orders and reimbursements earned. • Effective FY 2013 trading partner agency ID and main account will no longer be required for the budgetary USSGLs.

  21. Fatal Edits • The current FACTS II edits • ATB balancing edits (debits + credits = zero) • New edits in FACTS II FY 2012 Qtr. 1 • SF 133 line 1700 (collections) must be greater than or equal to zero. • SF 133 line 1800 (collections) must be greater than or equal to zero. • The sum of SF 133 lines 2004 and 2104 must be greater than or equal to zero. • 4201 beginning = 4201 ending in the same year • 4139 beginning = 4139 ending in the same year • 4149 beginning = 4149 ending in the same year • Prior year adjustment domain value B debits = credits (budgetary) • Prior year adjustment domain value P debits = credits (budgetary)

  22. Edits Using Authoritative Data • Central Accounting and Reporting System (CARS) • FBWT = 101000 (fatal period 12) • Net outlays = SF 133 lines (fatal) • Appropriation transfers = 412800, 412900, 416700, 417000, 417300, 417500 (non fatal) • Balance transfers = 417600, 419000, 419100, 419200, 419300, 435600 (non fatal) • Appropriation and balance transfers = 310200, 575500 (non fatal) • Normal warrant activity = 310100, 310600 (non fatal)

  23. Edits Using Authoritative Data Bureau of Public Debt Edits (non fatal) • Investments • BPD Interest Payable = Agency Interest Receivable • BPD Liabilities = Agency Assets • BPD Expenses = Agency Revenue, Gains and Losses • Loans • BPD Interest Receivable = Agency Interest Payable • BPD Asset = Agency Liability • BPD Revenue, Gains and Losses = Agency Interest Expense Federal Financing Bank Edits (non –fatal) • Loans • FFB Interest Receivable = Agency Interest Payable • FFB Assets = Agency Liability • FFB Revenue = Agency Expenses
