Welcome to FMS Reference Data!

Welcome to the Financial Management Service's Reference Data web site. This site provides a list of values for Treasury Account Symbols (TAS) and Business Event Type Codes (BETC), part of FMS Accounting Data Standards (FADS). Agency Location Codes (ALC) are also FADS, and can be found at the Shared Accounting Module (SAM). A user id is necessary to access ALC information.

TAS components are eight meaningful pieces of business data, which combine to identify an account of the US Treasury. These components are joined with a Business Event Type Code (BETC) to report Federal government financial transactions.

Per Commissioner David Lebryk’s January 14, 2011 letter to the CFO community [ http://www.fms.treas.gov/ccmm/final-CFO-letter-01-14-11.pdf], FMS will use and collect the Component TAS and business event type code (BETC) from all internal and external systems as of October 1, 2014. For more information on transitioning to the Component TAS, refer to http://fms.treas.gov/cars/factsheet_tas.html.

What's New?

A new Business Transaction Type has been introduced. Non Treasury Disbursing Office (NTDO) Payment files are now available for download.

All files in XML format will follow FMS Treasury Account Symbol Records Message v3.0 Schema. The schema may be obtained at http://fms.treas.gov/data/index.html. Select Current FMS XML Release to download the current suite of schemas. The Treasury Account Symbol schema is located in the TAS folder. If you have any questions, please contact sam.testing@stls.frb.org.

Available Reference Files

This website also provides reference data download files in multiple formats, as well as mappings from the current TAS formats to the new Component TAS format.

Available downloadable files include separate Treasury account files for Intragovernmental Payments and Collection (IPAC), Payment, NTDO Payment, Collection and Authority Transactions. All of the files are updated every 24 hours to reflect changes to this reference data.
