  16. Internet Payment Platform (IPP) Intra-Governmental Transaction Module Briefing Peter Moore 16

  17. IPP Intra-Governmental Automation The Internet Payment Platform (IPP) is a U.S. Treasury program for processing electronic orders, invoices and payment information It is provided by U.S. Treasury at no charge to agencies IPP was originally set up to handle commercial transactions between agencies and suppliers It has been enhanced to support Intra-Governmental Buy/Sell transactions between agencies (IPP Intra-Gov)

  18. IPP Intra-Gov Project Goals Facilitate a standard business process for agencies to transact and reconcile buy/sell activity Implement a digital version of the new standard InterAgency Agreement (IAA) Improve Buy / Sell management

  19. IPP Intra-Gov Project Goals (cont.) Support the complete process flow from the IAA to settlement confirmation in one central location Provide visibility for both trading partners throughout the transaction lifecycle 19

  20. IPP Intra-Gov IAA Implementation Challenges The new standard IAA is in the process of being introduced to agencies today, and is being finalized There is no central digital system available to all agencies to implement the new standard business process Migration to a single standard across agency trading partners with multiple processes and systems is difficult 20

  21. IPP Intra-Gov Project Approach Leverage the current IPP commercial capabilities and best practices Leverage IPAC’s intra-governmental transaction settlement capabilities Enhance and integrate the two platforms to allow IPP to serve as a frontend to IPAC and automate support for buy/sell transactions 21

  22. IPP Intra-Gov Project Approach (cont.) Support new standard IAA, initially via entry in IPP in Phase I, additionally via integration with agency systems in Phase II or III Proactive controls to ensure that only valid reference data values are used (BPN, TAS/BETC, etc.) Incorporate agency feedback on proposed changes Implement the new standard process and automated solutions government-wide 22

  23. Intra-Gov Buy/Sell Modernization Phases Multi-phased roll out:
