Payment Application Modernization (PAM)
TAS/BETC Technical Walkthrough
TAS/BETC Technical Walkthrough sessions focus on technical aspects of preparing Federal Program Agencies to become GWA/CARS Reporters for the October 1, 2014 mandate. The primary focus will be on the detailed technical changes for each payment application, including a walkthrough of file format data elements for the program upload files.
Training will be presented by key personnel from the GWA, SAM, SPS, and PAM applications.
All FPAs will be required to define and submit valid component TAS/BETC information with all transactions, including payments. To comply with this requirement, Agencies will need to convert to standard payment request input formats that include the necessary TAS/BETC components for reporting. Once converted, TAS/BETC information will be reported to Governmentwide Accounting (GWA/CARS) in order to satisfy the CARS reporting requirements.
Commissioner Dave Lebryk has signed follow-up memos to the January 14, 2011, memo emphasizing the October 1, 2014 CARS Reporter deadline. Memorandum for All CFO's and Deputy CFO's
