The United States Federal Government, along with the U.S. Department of Treasury, has an ongoing “Government Wide Accounting” (GWA) modernization initiative to standardize accounting classifications and payment structures. By October 1, 2014 it is mandatory that all U.S. Government agencies become GWA reporters and begin using the new PAM/SPR and SPS formats which include Treasury Account Symbol/Business Event Type Codes (TAS/BETC).


These changes impact the following PeopleSoft Treasury Interface Programs:

- (1) FGPY003.SQR: A new Payment Application Modernization (PAM) Bulk Payment Format Standard Payment Request (SPR) that also includes TAS/BETC reporting; and

- (2) FGPY004.SQR: A revised Secure Payment System (SPS) format where a new record has been added reflecting TAS/BETC reporting. (Previously referred to as Create Electronic Certification System or ECS).
