Bulletin No. 2022-11


To: Heads of Government Departments, Agencies, and Others Concerned

Subject: Federal Account Symbols and Titles (FAST Book)

1. Purpose

This bulletin notifies agencies that the FAST Book has been revised. The FAST Book displays the three-digit agency identifier code for the account lists and displays the two-digit agency identifier code in parentheses after the agency’s name for reference.

Agencies may access the FAST Book on the FAST Book website.

2. Rescission

This bulletin rescinds TFM Volume I Bulletin No. 2022-02: Federal Account Symbols and Titles (FAST Book).

3. Background

To standardize data elements, the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) partnered to establish standard three-digit agency identifier codes. The three-digit agency identifier codes replaced the two-digit department regular codes that Fiscal Service and OMB used for transaction processing and central reporting.

4. Summary of Changes to the FAST Book

See the attached Summary of Changes for the FAST Book.

5. Fiscal Service Application Updates

Fiscal Service has transaction and reporting systems to collect and display the Component Treasury Account Symbols (TAS). Currently, agencies have the option to use the string-based TAS format or the Component TAS format in some of the government-wide accounting applications, such as the Central Accounting Reporting System (CARS), and the Account Statement and the Classification Transaction and Accountability Module.

However, the Governmentwide Treasury Account Symbol Adjusted Trial Balance System (GTAS) requires all agencies to submit their accounting data in the Component TAS format. In addition, the Intra-governmental Payment and Collection System (IPAC) requires agencies to use the Component TAS format when creating transactions either online or through bulk file submissions. IPAC can still provide historical reports that display data on the String TAS format if agencies need that format for reconciling Fund Balance with Treasury transactions.

Application updates are available to agencies who subscribe to the Fiscal Service E-mail Notification Service.

6. Effective Date

This bulletin is effective immediately.
