The Payment Information Repository (PIR) is a multi-year initiative that will create a centralized information repository for federal payment related data. The PIR is a Financial Management Service (FMS) effort aimed at improving and increasing the transparency of government payments, as well as streamlining the reporting of accounting classification information from Non-Treasury Disbursing Offices (NTDOs).
PIR is an information repository and business analytics solution. PIR will:
Replace FMS CA$HLINK II functionality for disbursement transactions
Support reporting of classification information to Governmentwide Accounting (GWA) for Non-Treasury Disbursing Offices (NTDO)
Offer a centralized repository containing detailed and summarized records of payments transactions processed by all federal program agencies
Provide business analytics and reporting capabilities on both summarized and detailed payment transactions
Support reporting of payment transactions to USASpending.gov for the purpose of matching payment transactions to program appropriations
Assist FMS in managing the quality of incoming payment transactions and their associated classifications in support of GWA
Make statistical and analytical reporting available, significantly improving the ability of the U.S. Treasury to more precisely manage its financial position and make informed decisions on payment trends
PIR is slated to become one of multiple information repositories that will provide information to the Financial Information Repository (FIR). While it is anticipated that business line specifics analytics and reporting will be conducted in the individual repositories, cross-business line analytics will be performed in the FIR.
