Contingency Mail–In Treasury General Account Program

The Contingency Mail-In Treasury General Account (CMITGA) Program was developed to provide Federal Program Agencies (FPA) a contingency solution to their standard OTCnet deposit reporting process. This contingency can be used in the event an FPA designated financial institution is unable to accept deposits for any, but not limited to the following reasons:

  • Will not open for business
  • Will be delayed in opening
  • Will have limited hours of operation
  • Are affected by environmental limitations, which prevent the physical delivery of the federal deposits

FPAs are required to notify the Fiscal Service (FS) prior to the use of the program. Contact the OTCnet Customer Service Team at 1-866-945-7920 and notify the customer service representative that your agency intends to use the CMITGA program. This notification will ensure that the FPAs are properly setup in the OTCnet application prior to mailing deposits to U.S. Bank for contingency purposes.

U.S. Bank is the Financial Institution that will provide depository services for the CMITGA Program. Once U.S. Bank receives a mailed in deposit from the FPA, U.S. Bank agents will confirm the deposit.
