Subject: Fiscal 2014 Implementation of the Six-Digit U.S. Government Standard General Ledger (USSGL) Account Number Code Structure

3. Rescission

This TFM bulletin rescinds TFM Volume I, Bulletin No. 2010-08.

4. Background

The new USSGL account number code structure will include six digits and will be implemented by adding two zeros, “00,” to the end of all USSGL account numbers. For example, USSGL account number 1010 will become USSGL account number code 101000. Agencies must not modify these six-digit USSGL account number codes. For agency-specific reporting needs, individual agencies may add a two-digit USSGL account extension code that will not be standardized in the USSGL. Use of the two-digit USSGL account extension code is at the discretion of the agency. By fiscal 2014, agencies must provide Treasury central reporting data using the new USSGL account number code structure.

5. Effective Date

This bulletin is effective immediately.
