SAM’s Purpose

  • Web-based application that facilitates the process of validating or deriving TAS/BETC combinations to classify transactions reported by Federal Program Agencies (FPA) to support the GWA objective of classifying transactions in real time.

  • Single touch point for Enterprise Reference Data (ERD)

    • Agency Location Code data

    • TAS/BETC data

    • ABA data


Tas betc combination
TAS/BETC Combination

Every transaction that is reported to the GWA system must contain a valid TAS and BETC.

Example:

20X0101 COLL

(COLL = Collection)


Sam operating modes
SAM Operating Modes

  • Validation – IPAC, Disbursements, and Collections

  • Translation –Collections and IPAC

  • Default – IPAC, Disbursements, and Collections


Validation mode
Validation Mode

SAM verifies the TAS/BETC information attached to a

Collection, Disbursement or IPAC transaction by the

FPA is valid per GWA’s Master Enterprise Reference

TAS/BETC data.

  • Validation is currently conducted in CGAC format


Translation mode
Translation Mode

Any FPA accounting data (account code, fund code, etc.) or collection mechanism data (Merchant ID, ALC + 2 Code, etc.) that can crosswalk to a TAS is referred to as a Classification Key (C-Key). SAM translates the C-Key attached to a transaction submitted by an FPA to the appropriate TAS and BETC combination.
