Shared Accounting Module

Shared Accounting Module

The Shared Accounting Module (SAM) validates or derives the combined Treasury Account Symbol (TAS) and Business Event Type Code (BETC) for financial transactions.

Thus, SAM helps governmentwide accounting by classifying financial transactions.

SAM is also the source for Enterprise Reference Data – standard codes for items such as agency location codes (ALCs) as well as TAS/BETC combinations.
