Getting Ready for TRS - When to Enroll


When to Enroll

The TRS Team will notify agencies of TRS readiness for agency transition. Agencies are candidates for enrollment when agency-specific data are available in TRS.

Agencies should make the decision about when to enroll based upon availability of data, as well as internal and external constraints which would influence when they could enroll. An agency’s mission constraints or planned changes to its internal systems, for instance, are two considerations that may influence whether it chooses to move forward with or delay enrollment for a few months.

Agencies interested in early adoption should contact the TRS Agency Outreach Team at 301-699-6814 or TRSAgencyOutreach@pnc.com.


Advantages of Early Adoption

Agencies choosing to enroll in TRS early will receive additional benefits that those which enroll later will not reap. First are the benefits that they will receive from TRS itself. TRS users will receive integrated reporting of deposit and detail transaction data from one source. In addition, they will receive classification information which is not in CA$HLINK II (CLII). Finally, they will receive consolidated reporting of multiple collections sources in one place as data is migrated to TRS.

Early adopters of TRS will also have a longer lead time to prepare for and make internal agency changes while being able to use TRS and CLII in parallel.

Finally, the enrollment process will become increasingly automated. Consequently, those agencies that enroll early will receive more personal attention than those delaying their enrollment.
