Bill-to-Collect Use Cases

Treasury's Office of Financial Innovation and Transformation (FIT) is the Line of Business (LoB) Managing Partner for the Federal Financial Management (FFM) area. FIT has developed a library of FFM Business Use Cases which reflect the business needs of the financial management community.  The library consists of the Federal Financial Management Business Use Case Library Overview, that provides the framework for understanding and using the business use cases, and a series of documents containing the business use cases organized within end-to-end-business processes.

This document contains the FFM business use cases associated with the Bill-to-Collect Business Process and should be used in conjunction with the Federal Financial Management Business Use Case Library Overview.

Penalties, Interest, and Collections
A disputed invoice, including some returned goods, is not paid on time causing penalties, interest, and fee; resolved with a credit memo and waiving penalties.
Delinquent Debt Processing
An unpaid invoice collects interest and fees and ages sufficiently to refer to Treasury for collection; customer is out of business and debt is written off.
AR/AP Netting
An overpayment on a bill is submitted using a Treasury-provided electronic payment system, and the subsequent bill is reduced by the payable to cover the overpayment.
Aggregated Receivables for Custodial Revenues
During a review of PSE activities owed to an agency, additional payments, penalties, and interest are found to be due and reported by the Agency to the Program Office.
Receivable Collection from Third Party Debtor
The costs of services are allocated to be reimbursed by multiple PSEs and moves into collection; an installment agreement is made with the parent PSE.
Miscellaneous Receipts
An agency's statutory authority specifies the portion of funds paid that may be retained for agency operations and the remainder go to a General Fund Receipt Account.
