Automated Standard Application for Payments (ASAP)

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is the most secure and efficient way for the federal government to make payments and process collections. The majority of EFT payments processed by the federal government are made through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network. Traditionally, only Fedwire payments could settle the same business day.

Effective April 16th, ASAP.gov will facilitate ACH payments to settle the same business day. While this adds extra payment convenience, we’re still dedicated to maintaining payment integrity. As a result, we’re hosting the following webinars so users can learn more about this new functionality:

What is ASAP?

ASAP is a completely electronic payment application for federal agencies to quickly and securely disburse funds to
recipient organizations.

Federal agencies enroll recipient organizations, authorize their payments and manage their accounts. Recipient organizations then request payments from these pre-authorized accounts.

The Department of the Treasury provides this service at no cost to federal agencies and their recipient organizations through ASAP.gov.

What are ASAP's Payment Options?

Grant Payments: Allows grantee "recipient" organizations to draw from accounts pre-authorized by federal agencies.

1031/Letter of Credit Payments:  Makes reimbursement payments to financial agents for financial services performed for either Fiscal Service or other federal agencies.

Debit Card Payments: Allows the financial institution responsible for administering the US Debit Card program to draw from accounts pre-authorized by federal agencies.
