Payment Application Modernization (PAM)
The Payment Automation Manager (PAM) is a standardized payment processing application that has replaced over 30 legacy applications. PAM is highly extensible and configurable to support the specific needs of Federal Program Agencies, annually processing approximately 1 billion federal payments more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Effective October 1, 2014, all Federal Program Agencies using Treasury disbursing services will be required to submit payment data using the PAM Standard Payment Request (SPR) format. The SPR format enables agencies to meet the Governmentwide Accounting / Central Accounting Reporting System (GWA/CARS) reporting requirement by providing Treasury Account Symbol/Business Event Type Code (TAS/BETC) information with payment files.
Commissioner Dave Lebryk has published annual memos describing the details and progress of Treasury’s efforts to modernize the payments, collections, and central accounting and reporting systems. Memorandum for All CFO's and Deputy CFO's
