Agency OTCnet Enrollment

OTCnet Enrollment for Federal Agencies

Enrolling your federal agency in OTCnet is easy. This page provides information and key documents necessary for getting started, taking training, and setting-up OTCnet at your organization.

As you know, the CASHLINK II system will be phased out as part of the Collections and Cash Management Modernization initiative that will transform the government's infrastructure for revenue collection. With the phasing out of CASHLINK II, all agencies with OTC deposits to commercial banks and Federal Reserve Banks must report them electronically in OTCnet. To prepare for the transition away from CASHLINK II, agencies should begin migrating all OTC deposits to OTCnet’s Depositing Reporting function.

Once your organization is enrolled, we will work with your agency for the transition to OTCnet.

Once on OTCnet, your Agency will enjoy the benefits of OTCnet, the web-based system that enables federal agencies to integrate check conversion and deposit reporting activities, so that all check and cash deposits are handled by a single, secure web-based application. With OTCnet you will improve over the counter collections by fully automating the collection, reconciliation, research, and reporting processes.
