Reporting and the Central Accounting Reporting System (CARS)

Recording Principal Transactions in CARS

Agencies report transactions involving principal to FIBB through CARS for both borrowings from and repayments to Treasury. By October 20 of the current fiscal year, agencies should submit an initial borrowing transaction through CARS with their current fiscal year borrowing estimate. They should submit any additional borrowings by the last business day of the month in which they need the funds.

All borrowings from Treasury are effective on October 1 of the current fiscal year, regardless of when the agency actually borrowed the funds, except for funds borrowed at the end of the fiscal year to make an annual interest payment. Borrowings for annual interest payments are effective September 30 of the current fiscal year. For repayments, the effective date equals the date of repayment.

Borrowings from Treasury and repayments to Treasury are processed as Non-Expenditure Transfers (NETs). All transactions must be "Agency Certified" in CARS by 3:00 p.m. ET to be processed the same day.

When submitting a transaction, the agency must include the following on the Supplemental Worksheet:

maturity date,

cohort year,

sub cohort (if applicable) - Generally, sub cohorts reflect separate risk categories as defined in OMB Circular No. A-11, and

amount for each transaction detail item.

Budget Deficit (Surplus) Reconciliation

Budget Deficit (Surplus) reporting in the FR is based on the published Monthly Treasury Statement (MTS) as of June 30 for third quarter and September 30 for fourth quarter, which is compiled from federal entities’ monthly reports to Treasury’s Central Accounting Reporting System (CARS). Those monthly reports to CARS may include, for example, the Classification Transactions and Accountability (CTA) report, the Statements of Transactions–SF 224, and the Statement of Accountability/Transactions–SF 1219/1220. The MTS, which conforms to the Budget of the U.S. Government, summarizes the financial activities of the federal government and off-budget federal entities.

The Budget Deficit (Surplus) Reconciliation validates the budget deficit (surplus) reported in the FR (on the Statement of Changes in Cash Balance from Budget and Other Activities, and the Reconciliation of Net Operating Cost and Budget Deficit) against entity audited financial statements.

Using the Budget Deficit (Surplus) Reconciliation Template provided by Fiscal Service, entities must identify and explain any inconsistencies at both third quarter and at year-end. The Budget Deficit (Surplus) Reconciliation Template is divided into four sections. These sections leverage reconciliations that entities already perform for net outlays, focus on collecting budget receipts data for all entities, and identify undistributed offsetting receipts data for key contributing entities. Each component of the budget deficit (surplus) is reconciled as shown below:

Budgets Receipts

Entities can refer to the GTAS website for instructions on how to complete the Budget Deficit (Surplus) Reconciliation Template. Entities must submit this reconciliation 45 business days after third quarter and again at fiscal year-end. All applicable documents are to be transmitted through but may also be transmitted directly to Fiscal Service in accordance with Fiscal Service requests.
