Payment Application Modernization (PAM)
The Payment Automation Manager (PAM) is a standardized payment processing application that has replaced over 30 legacy applications.
PAM can be expanded and configured to support the specific needs of Federal Program Agencies, annually processing approximately 1 billion federal payments more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Effective October 1, 2014, all Federal Program Agencies using Treasury disbursing services will be required to submit payment data using the PAM Standard Payment Request (SPR) format.
The SPR format enables agencies to meet the Governmentwide Accounting / Central Accounting Reporting System (GWA/CARS) reporting requirement by providing Treasury Account Symbol/Business Event Type Code (TAS/BETC) information with payment files.
The Commissioner of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service has published annual memos describing the details and progress of Treasury’s efforts to modernize the payments, collections, and central accounting and reporting systems. See the Memorandum for All CFO's and Deputy CFO's.
