This part prescribes procedures and forms government agencies use in reporting accounting transactions to the Department of the Treasury (Treasury), Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service).

This chapter prescribes procedures for Federal Reserve Banks (FRBs) and their branches to follow when preparing and sending CASH TRACK Transmittals to the CASH TRACK system.

Section 2010—Scope and Applicability

Periodically, the Cash Reporting Branch (CRB) sends FRBs notice of revisions to the CASH TRACK Transmittal format. This action ensures that FRBs can implement necessary automated system developments. It applies to all FRBs and their branches and allows the Treasury to carry out its cash and debt management operations. Effective government cash management and related Federal Reserve Bank open-market operations depend on accurate and timely data receipt.
