Tie-Point Project


Overview

The U.S. Government Standard General Ledger (USSGL) Issues Resolution Committee is undertaking a project, referred to as the "Tie-Point Project," to develop a series of standard USSGL accounting relationships and to publish them in a workbook. The goals of this project are to:

  • Help agencies detect certain variances before they prepare and submit quarter-end or year-end accounting data;

  • Highlight new USSGL issues;

  • Help users gain a better understanding of USSGL-based accounting and reporting;

  • Improve the integrity of the data at the Governmentwide level.

The USSGL staff looks forward to working with agencies on this project and thanks you in advance for your assistance.
