Source Systems for Data
Source systems are also known as Sending Trading Partners (STPs), Collections Channels, or Channel Applications.
Downstream Reporting
Downstream reporting systems are referred to as CIR’s Receiving Trading Partners (RTPs). These systems receive information from CIR and use it to meet their financial management and reporting responsibilities.

The Flow of Data

STPs receive and process Federal Program Agencies’ (FPAs) collections. Exceptions to the rule are FPAs and TGA banks that send collections information to directly to OTCnet for processing and lockboxes that send collections activity only to OTCnet and ECP for processing.
STPs send detailed collections transactions, where applicable, and deposit information to the CIR.
RTPs process and reconcile files from CIR that support the reporting of Treasury Account Symbols (TAS)/Business Event Type Code (BETC) and Classification Keys (C-Key) data to meet end-of-day financial management and reporting responsibilities within the downstream systems.
