Plain Language

– The process by which Congress designates and approves spending for a specific purpose (e.g., a project or program). Most government spending is determined through appropriation bills each year. These bills must be passed by Congress and signed by the President.

When an appropriation is not passed by Congress before the beginning of the fiscal year, a “continuing resolution” (often referred to as a “CR”) may be enacted to avoid a government shutdown. A CR is a law that provides stopgap funding for agencies until their regular appropriations are passed.

 

Official Definition

– (No Official Definition)

Plain Language

– When Congress passes a law, it often gives an agency authority to carry out a project. When this happens, Congress may set aside money for the project. An appropriation account tracks the money, much like a bank account. The appropriation account number (like a bank account number) is called a Treasury Account Symbol (TAS).

Official Definition

– The basic unit of an appropriation generally reflecting each unnumbered paragraph in an appropriation act. An appropriation account typically encompasses a number of activities or projects and may be subject to restrictions or conditions applicable to only the account, the appropriation act, titles within an appropriation act, other appropriation acts, or the Government as a whole.

An appropriations account is represented by a TAFS created by Treasury in consultation with OMB.

Plain Language

– Within a Treasury Account Symbol (TAS), this one-letter code Identifies the availability (or time period) for obligations to be made on the appropriation account. A TAS will have an “X” if there is an unlimited or indefinite period to incur new obligations.

Official Definition

– In appropriations accounts, the availability type code identifies an unlimited period to incur new obligations; this is denoted by the letter X.

Plain Language

– Money the federal government has promised to pay a recipient. Funding may be awarded to a company, organization, government entity (i.e., state, local, tribal, federal, or foreign), or individual.

For procurement and financial assistance awards except loans, this is the sum of Federal Action Obligations.

For loans or loan guarantees, this is the Original Subsidy Cost.

Plain Language

– A unique identification number for each individual award. An award may be a contract, grant, loan, insurance, or direct payment.

Official Definition

– The unique identifier of the specific award being reported, i.e. Federal Award Identification Number (FAIN) for financial assistance and Procurement Instrument Identifier (PIID) for procurement.

Plain Language

– The federal government can distribute funding in several forms, including contracts, grants, loans, insurance, and direct payments. Award Type is a classification that provides more information about the structure of the award. Examples include:

Purchase Order (a type of contract)

Definitive Contract (a type of contract)

Block Grant (a type of grant)

Direct Loan (a type of loan)

Official Definition

         – Description (and corresponding code) that provides information to distinguish type of contract, grant, or loan and providers the user with more granularity into the method of          delivery of the outcomes.

Plain Language

Official Definition

– The name and code associated with a department or establishment of the Government as used in the Treasury Account Fund Symbol (TAFS).

Plain Language

– The office within an agency that issues and administers the award.

Official Definition

B

Plain Language

– Funds that were not spent (obligated or outlaid) in previous years and are authorized to be spent in the current year.

Official Definition

– The definition for this element appears in Appendix F of OMB Circular A-11 issued June 2015; a brief summary from A-11 appears below. For unexpired accounts: Amount of unobligated balance of appropriations or other budgetary resources carried forward from the preceding year and available for obligation without new action by Congress. For expired accounts: Amount of expired unobligated balances available for upward adjustments of obligations.

Plain Language

– A Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) is a type of Indefinite Delivery Vehicle (IDV). It is not a contract; it is a written understanding between government and contractor. It details the supplies or services offered. It also details pricing and delivery for future orders.

BOA’s can speed up contracting when requirements are uncertain. For instance, when specifications, quantities, and prices are not yet known.

These agreements can also help the government achieve economies of scale for part orders. For the contractor, they can lessen lead-time, enable a larger inventory investment, and lessen old inventory.

Official Definition

– (No Official Definition)

Plain Language

– Identifies the first year that an appropriation account may incur new obligations. This is for annual and multi-year funds only. This is a 4-digit number representing the year (e.g., 2017). It is a part of a Treasury Account Symbol (TAS).

Official Definition

– In annual and multi-year funds, the beginning period of availability identifies the first year of availability under law that an appropriation account may incur new obligations.

Plain Language

– A Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) is a method federal agencies use to make repeat purchases of supplies or services. A type of Indefinite Delivery Vehicle (IDV), a BPA operates by setting up a “charge account” with trusted vendors. Both agencies and vendors often prefer BPAs because they help speed up the process of repeated purchases. Once a BPA is set up, repeat purchases are easy for both sides.

  A BPA is an agreement with an individual agency, meaning only a handful of offices can place orders on a BPA. A BPA can be awarded to a set of vendors, who will then be able to bid on upcoming orders. A BPA can be set up with or without General Services Administration (GSA) schedules. Without GSA schedules, orders are capped at the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (SAT) of $100,000.

 Examples of BPAs: 

  • Agency A establishes a BPA with a computer manufacturer for repeat laptop purchases
  • Agency B establishes a BPA with a graphic design agency for design of brochures and event signage

Examples of federal block grant programs are the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, and the grants to states for social services under title XX of the Social Security Act.

Plain Language

– A federal agency is only allowed to spend money if Congress provides the authority by law for that spending. That permission to spend is called “budget authority.”

Budget authority can be granted through an appropriation law, which specifies a purpose, usually a maximum amount of money, and a set time period. Budget authority can also be granted for spending unused funds from a previous year, or to spend money that the agency takes in (e.g., the National Park Service is authorized to spend fees collected for park admission regardless of the amount).

Official Definition

Plain Language

– Disaster Emergency Fund Code (DEFC) is used to track the spending of funding for disasters and emergencies such as COVID-19. Each code links to one or more legislative bills that authorized the funding.

Official Definition

– The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), working with the Department of Treasury’s Fiscal Service, has identified a Government-wide Treasury Account Symbol Adjusted Trial Balance System (GTAS) attribute called ‘Disaster Emergency Fund Code (DEFC)’ to track appropriations classified as disaster or emergency. This code applies to the budgetary resources, obligations incurred, unobligated and obligated balances, and outlays that result from these appropriations.

As established in Memorandum M-18-08, the domain value set for DEFC is a single letter from ‘A’ to ‘Z’. The default domain value for all funding without disaster or emergency designation is ‘Q’. OMB assigns a new DEFC domain value from the set to each enacted appropriation with disaster or emergency funding. The corresponding domain title for each DEFC domain value identifies the associated public law number(s) and whether the funding is a disaster or emergency.

Memorandum M-20-21 amended the above to allow agencies to use DEFC to meet reporting requirements for COVID-19 supplemental funding, which required tracking of funds not designated as an emergency.

Agencies use the following DEFC domain values and titles for COVID-19 supplemental funding:

DEFC ‘L’ Public Law 116-123, designated as emergency

DEFC ‘M’ Public Law 116-127, designated as emergency

DEFC ‘N’ Public Law 116-136, designated as emergency

DEFC ‘O’ Public Law 116-136, Public Law 116-139, and Public Law 116-260,             not designated as emergency

DEFC ‘P’ Public Law 116-139, designated as emergency

DEFC ‘U’ Public Law 116-260, designated as emergency

DEFC ‘V’ Public Law 117-2, American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, not designated as emergency

Note that the National Interest Action (NIA) code is also used to track COVID-19 spending. However, it only applies to procurement actions (i.e., contracts) and is not necessarily tied to COVID-19 supplemental appropriations. Thus, awards with the COVID-19 NIA value may not have a COVID-19 DEFC value and vice versa.

Plain Language

– A federal award from the government that the borrower will eventually have to pay back. Direct loans are those made for a specific time period with a reasonable expectation of repayment; they may or may not require interest payments.

Official Definition

– (No Official Definition)

Plain Language

– When the government makes a direct loan or guarantees a loan, it expects the loan to be repaid. However, for any given loan program (e.g., student loans, small business loan guarantees) some individual loans are not repaid. Subsidy cost is the government’s way to estimate–based on historical default rates and other factors–a loan’s likely cost to the government. Subsidy cost is computed as a percentage of the loan value, and does not include administrative costs.

While the award amount for a grant or contract is the amount that the recipient gets, for a loan, the award amount is the subsidy cost. This is because the subsidy cost is the actual cost to the government (estimated).

Official Definition

– The estimated long-term cost to the Government of a direct loan or loan guarantee, or modification thereof, calculated on a net present value basis, excluding administrative costs.

Plain Language

– When awarding funding, the U.S. government enters a binding agreement called an obligation. The government promises to spend the money, either immediately or in the future. An agency incurs an obligation, for example, when it places an order, signs a contract, awards a grant, purchases a service, or takes other actions that require it to make a payment.

Official Definition

– Obligation means a legally binding agreement that will result in outlays, immediately or in the future. When you place an order, sign a contract, award a grant, purchase a service, or take other actions that require the Government to make payments to the public or from one government account to another, you incur an obligation. It is a violation of the Antideficiency Act (31 U.S.C. § 1341(a)) to involve the Federal Government in a contract or obligation for payment of money before an appropriation is made unless authorized by law. This means you cannot incur obligations in a vacuum; you incur an obligation against budget authority in a Treasury account that belongs to your agency. It is a violation of the Antideficiency Act to incur an obligation in an amount greater than the amount available in the Treasury account that is available. This means that the account must have budget authority sufficient to cover the total of such obligations at the time the obligation is incurred. In addition, the obligation you incur must conform to other applicable provisions of law, and you must be able to support the amounts reported by the documentary evidence required by 31 U.S.C. § 1501. Moreover, you are required to maintain certifications and records showing that the amounts have been obligated (31 U.S.C. § 1108). The following subsections provide additional guidance on when to record obligations for the different types of goods and services or the amount.

Additional detail is provided in Circular A‐11.

Plain Language

– A Product or Service Code (PSC) is a 4-character code that identifies the type of product, service, or research & development (R&D) purchased. While NAICS codes identify the industry most relevant to a contract, PSCs tell you what the contract is specifically purchasing. For example, a contract’s NAICS code might point to the “Industrial Building Construction” industry, while that same contract’s PSC points to “Construct Hospitals and Infirmaries.” There are nearly three times as many PSCs (over 2,900) as there are NAICS codes (just over 1000), which in many cases allows a more granular PSC designation than NAICS code designation for a given contract.

          All PSC are 4 characters long, but there is an embedded hierarchy in the codes.

R&D: begin with ‘A’ (indicating R&D), followed by a second letter, followed by a number, followed by a number (four levels of hierarchy). Example: AA11.

Services: begin with ‘B’ to ‘Z’ (indicating the subcategory of Service), followed by a number, followed by two letters (four levels of hierarchy if you include the “Service” designation). Example: C1AA

Products: begin with two numbers (indicating the subcategory of Product), followed by two more numbers (three levels of hierarchy if you include the “Product” designation). Example: 1005

– Sub Account Code (SUB) is a component of the TAS that identifies a Treasury-defined subdivision of a Federal Account (AID + MAIN). Most Federal Accounts do not have subdivisions. 000 is the default SUB; if 000 is the only SUB under a given Federal Account, it has not been subdivided

Plain Language

– A sub-award is an agreement that a prime recipient makes with another entity to perform a portion of their award. On our website, these recipients are known as sub-recipients. Sub-awards might also be referred to as a sub-contract or a sub-grant.

 

Official Definition

– An award provided by a pass-through entity to a subrecipient for the subrecipient to carry out part of a federal award received by the pass-through entity. It does not include payments to a contractor or payments to an individual that is a beneficiary of a federal program. A subaward may be provided through any form of legal agreement, including an agreement that the pass-through entity considers a contract. (2CFR)

Plain Language

– A company, organization, individual, or government entity (i.e., state, local, tribal, or foreign) that receives funding from another recipient of federal funds (a prime recipient), rather than directly from the U.S. government. The sub-recipient may be a sub-contractor or a sub-grantee. For example, the Dept. of Transportation awards Bridge Company A a bridge construction contract. Bridge Company A needs Bridge Company B to supply the steel, so Bridge Company A awards Bridge Company B a sub-award. Bridge Company B is the sub-contractor. On the grants side, University A receives an R&D grant from the National Science Foundation. University A needs University B to perform the initial step in the research, so University A awards University B a sub-award. University B is the sub-grantee.

Official Definition

– A non-Federal entity that receives a sub-award from a pass-through entity to carry out part of a federal program; but does not include an individual that is the beneficiary of such program. (grants.gov)

– Treasury and OMB assign a code to each appropriation, receipt, or fund account. This code is similar to a bank account number. It helps identify financial transactions in the federal government. It also aids in reporting accuracy. TAS are sometimes referred to as ‘program source’ in legislation. On this website, we group each set of Treasury Accounts that share an Agency Identifier and Main Account Code into a “Federal Account”.

            Seven components make up the TAS:

Allocation Transfer Agency Identifier (ex. 089)

Agency Identifier (ex. 020)

Beginning Period of Availability (ex. 2017)

Ending Period of Availability (ex. 2018)

Availability Type Code (used if there are not specific beginning/ending years) (ex. X)

Main Account Code (ex. 0114)

Sub Account Code (ex. 000)

             Example TAS:

089-020-2017/2018-0114-000

089-020-2017/2017-0114-000
