What does this mean for you as an agency user?

Agencies and financial institutions MUST use OTCnet for all over-the counter deposits. Your primary mechanism for collections reporting is the Collections Information Repository (CIR), which is the new name for the Transaction Reporting System (TRS). CA$HLINK II no longer receives collections data and agencies and financial institutions can no longer use CA$HLINK II in ongoing daily work processes.

All agency Fedwire and ACH credit transactions must settle directly in Treasury through the Credit Gateway and not through a commercial bank. If you are still receiving Fedwire or ACH credit transactions directly in an agency TGA account, that are not being processed through Credit Gateway, please contact the FMS Credit Gateway Program Manager, Randolph Maxwell, at 202-874-5304 or email
