Payment Automation Manager (PAM)

The U.S. government uses the Payment Automation Manager (PAM) to pay all bills, except payments in foreign currency.

PAM processes about 1.2 billion payments each year, paying out almost 3 trillion dollars.

PAM replaced many older systems that Federal Program Agencies used, saving money and increasing efficiency.
