Monthly reporting ensures the Governmentwide Treasury Account Symbol Adjusted Trial Balance (GTAS) data provided to external stakeholders, including Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Congress, is accurate and supports an efficient quarterly certification process. Below are some of the specific benefits associated with monthly GTAS reporting.
Allows Treasury to perform month to month analysis of federal entity data, which helps Fiscal Service alleviate potential open audit findings related to the Financial Report.
Enables Treasury to identify and address reporting issues earlier in the fiscal year, alleviating the year end reporting burden.
Supports OMB budget submission requirements and the associated deadlines to Congress.
Provides feedback to federal entities on how to be more accurate and efficient when loading data since the monthly reporting process allows them to learn from reporting issues in previous reporting periods.
To comply with the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act), federal agencies must provide certain budgetary, procurement, and financial assistance data to USAspending.gov. This section provides guidance on how to accurately report the required data through the DATA Act Broker Submission (DABS) and the Financial Assistance Broker Submission (FABS).
