SPS Large Dollar Notification Warning

If a schedule contains at least one payment of fifty million dollars or more, Certifying Officers will get a ‘SPS Large Dollar Notification Warning’.

  • The schedule you are certifying meets the threshold in the Treasury Financial Manual (TFM) Volume 1, Part 6, Chapter 8500 requiring a “Large Dollar Notification (LDN)” to the Bureau of the Fiscal Service, Cash Reporting Branch.  The notification rules are:
    • $50 - $500 million (minimum 2 business days advanced notice)
    • Over $500 million (minimum 5 business days advanced notice)
  • A reasonable estimate is acceptable if the exact amount of the schedule is unknown in the TFM guidelines.  By selecting ‘OK’, you are agreeing that you provided proper notification under this policy.
  • Notification should be sent to Cash.Reporting@Fiscal.Treasury.Gov and should include.
    • ALC
    • Settlement Date
    • Amount
    • Payment Mechanism
    • Contact Name/Number

Please be aware that the Cash Reporting Branch is not authorizing this transaction but gathers LDN information for the Office of Fiscal Projections to aid in forecasting analysis that impact future financing decisions.
