14 Example of BOCT FY Differences It is important to look up the BOC by fiscal year of the transaction. For example: You are trying to process an EW from Fund 0160A1, FY 10, BOC 1150 for performance awards to Fund 0160X4, BFY 94. If you look on the BOCT table for FY 94 BOC 1150 did not exist. In scanning the BOCT table for FY 94 you will find that BOC 1114 is for performance awards.

21 2-13 The FMS Accounting Codes Accounting Codes are used to indicate the accounting distribution associated with each document. When entering the accounting codes, enter only those which are relevant to the budget affected by the document. Fund codes (FUND) represent various combinations of an appropriation code, category, and limitation. The new budget structure uses the FMS "Fund Code" to identify the limitation code in addition to the appropriation and apportionment codes, (e.g. 0160A1). An Administration/Staff Office (A/O) code stands for the Administration or Staff Office that manages a given fund. A/O codes are also used to identify the user entering a document. A/O 04 – FSC/VACO Finance 10 – Medical Centers 20 – VBA Veterans Benefit Admin 40 – National Cemetery 90 – OAMM/Supply Fund (4537B) 08 – Construction (if CO is funding) 02 – District Counsel Station Numbers (STATION/SAT) are the three-character identifiers assigned to each VA station. Budget Object Codes (BOC/SUB) are four-character fields used to identify goods and services purchased with Federal funds. The first two digits of each BOC (referred to as the object class) are standard within the Federal government. Cost Centers (COST CTR/SUB) are six-character, non-budgetary, organization codes used to record expenditures of funds by various organizations within VA. Fund Control Point (FCP) – also known as Accounting Classification Codes (ACC) – this is comprised of four codes with the following format: CharacterDescription 1-2Program Code 3-4Sub-program Code 5-7Organization Code 8-9Activity Code

37 Accounts Receivable, Negative PV 03s, Treasury Offset Program (TOP)

38 3-1 The Accounts Receivable Subsystem is the FMS method for recording and managing outstanding receivables and accurately applying cash receipts. The VA will use this subsystem to record the amounts billed and collected, including revenue transactions for services rendered, vendor refunds, balance sheet transfers, and cash advances. The Accounts Receivable Subsystem allows the VA to account for these billings and collections for financial accounting and reporting purposes. This chapter contains the following information on how to: Process a Billing Document (BD) to record a bill for collection. Process a Cash Receipt (CR) to record a cash collection. Process a Write-off (WR) document to record an accounts receivable write-off.

52 Here is the information, which will clarify who is responsible for the accounts receivables. RECORDS, REPORTS, AND ACCOUNTING RECORDS a. As managers, all field station Fiscal activities, VACO Finance Service, and the Debt Management Center (DMC) must establish and maintain accounts receivable records in a current status by program, type of debt, and appropriation. All collection actions taken, collections received, amounts offset, waiver action, etc., including adjustments of any kind on a debtor's account, are to be timely documented in the Department's accounts receivable records. b. Complete records are to be maintained, by program, type of debt, and appropriation, of accounts receivable waived, compromised, suspended, terminated or referred to the District Counsel (DC) or Department of Justice (DOJ) for enforced collection so that reports required by paragraph and ad hoc reports required by management can be completed. c. All VA components who refer accounts receivable to other VA components or external agencies for additional collection action or advice are responsible for keeping informed of the current status of those receivables (reconciling their accounts with the component the debts were referred to) and for reporting and accounting purposes. Here is some additional information. This report is generated each pay period. At the time payroll processes a Record Print Out (RPO) is generated for employees on LWOP and whose FEHB is advanced by the agency. This information goes to FMS and appears on the F842 report in RSD. 3-15

53 3-16 CAPPS Write Off Criteria Note: Amounts greater than $99, or older than 360 days will never be written off automatically. Needs to be reviewed manually then written off if appropriate.

R-is for open receivers awaiting invoices. W is for receiving reports written off. The document types will be seen in the CAPPS System and this report. When the modifications are done by the stations through FMS, the stations must contact Austin (FOS) to have the CAPPS System updated manually. When the CAPPS system does a write off, you will see a “W” for the document type and a 0.00 CV document will be generated. 3-17

Station also offset $17 to finish clearing advance from appropriation or MCCF. Originally, the injured spouse pays the $17 fee in addition to the debt amount, which is why we need to refund it to them.

67 3-30 Treasury Offset Program (TOP) The Financial Services Center (FSC), Financial Accounting Service (FAS), Accounting, Reconciliation & Reports Division (ARRD) will record a transaction (OS-15) in the Financial Management System (FMS), which notifies field facilities when one of their payments has been offset by TOP. The FMS OS-15 transaction records a zero dollar amount to Standard General Ledger accounts 99D1 and 99D2 and reference the payment obligation. Additionally, the transaction is reflected on field facilities’ daily Accepted Document Listing (RGSADLV – F829) and on FMS research tables (DXRF, PVHT/PVLT, GLDB). Since the OS-15 records a zero dollar amount, the offset amount and agency information is reflected in the invoice number field of the transaction. For example, VENDOR INV: TOP- $ – IRS. In some cases, the TOP offset may affect several payments to a vendor on the same day. In that case, the OS-15 is recorded to one payment/obligation and the total amount of the offset reflected in the invoice number field. The OS document number reflects the same document number, which was offset by TOP.

72 3a-1 What is a Receiver document? The Receiver document is an important facet of the FMS purchasing cycle. VA will use this document to record the receipt and acceptance of goods. In addition, the receiver updates the FMS system tables upon document acceptance, providing accurate, up-to-the-minute information on the status of funds. There are 3 types of Receiver documents used for this purpose: 1. RT document – records the receipt and acceptance of goods with a Document Locator Number (DLN), maintaining accrual information for goods, and posting the accrued expenditure and liquidating the referenced obligation. Scenario – The VA obligates funds for the purchase of supplies. The supplies are received, but the entire order is not filled. A receiver document is processed referencing the obligation and recording a DLN to show the partial receipt of supplies. 2. RC document – records the receipt and acceptance of goods without a DLN, maintaining accrual information for goods, and posting the accrued expenditure and liquidating the referenced obligation. Scenario – The VA obligates funds for the purchase of supplies from another government agency. The supplies are received, but the entire order is not filled. A receiver document is processed referencing the obligation and not recording a DLN to show the partial receipt of supplies. 3. AR document – used for posting the accrued expenditure and liquidating the referenced obligation. Generated by SO, CO, and AO documents, if entered with an auto accrue flag of “Y”. AR documents can also be entered manually when the auto accrue flag on the obligation document is “N”. Scenario – The VA obligates funds for an elevator maintenance contract. The contract spans twelve months. At the end of each month, the system will automatically generate an accrual for this obligation. The system will reverse the accrual at the beginning of the following month.

159 7-4 COMMON F911 VS MACRO ISSUES As noted in each station's worksheet, please be advised that if the normal entry is a C4 or D4 and the BFY is prior year, the actual account balance can be opposite of the normal balance if it was caused by specific prior year transactions; however, each facility needs to review each account listed in their worksheet and determine the cause of the abnormality and take necessary corrective actions, accordingly. A brief description of the corrective action taken on each abnormal balance should be documented using the "insert", "comment" option in the excel worksheet. Kindly collect the completed worksheets directly from your facilities and have the file sent back to "VHA CFO Financial Analyses Shared Mailbox" with your VISN number on the subject line. Abnormal balances in SGL accounts 1319, 1329, 1339, and 1369 Kindly be advised that the Central Office is currently responsible for recording allowance for bad debt for non-healthcare receivable. CO will process a SV to correct the abnormality. Until this function returns to facilities we are asking facilities not make any adjustments into the allowance accounts (SGL) 1319, 1329, 1339, and 1369 for Funds 1435, 3220, 3200, and AMAF except the normal write off transactions. Questions concerning this request should be forwarded to "VHA CFO Financial Analyses Shared Mailbox" or you may call Sylvia Nieto at Stations should not reverse the SVs processed by CO. Debit balances in account 490F – These typically occur because of payments going in as Federal vendor ID number get changed to Non-Federal and when the AD hits it causes the abnormal balances. A BL transaction can be done by FSC Accountants. Send a JV request to debit 490N and credit 490F for the amount. The 490N balance is supposed to be in agreement with all of the non-federal payables (2000 series) accounts. Send JV (1017 form) to FSC Accountant. Because these are budgetary accounts, reference the Cost Center/Accounting Classification Code/Fund Control Point/Budget Object Code to use for the entry. Debit balances in account 490G – These typically occur because of expenditure transfer transactions between funds that use the station’s vendor ID instead of the non-federal vendor ID against which the initial expenditures were processed. Expenditure transfers with a federal vendor ID post to 490G while transfers using a non-federal ID post to 490P. IFCAP uses the station vendor ID instead of the US Bank ID on credit card ET transactions so stations can’t prevent debits in 490G resulting from credit card ETs. For other types of expenditure transfers, stations can eliminate this problem by using the actual vendor ID or MISCN. To correct existing debits, stations can identify expenditure transfers that created the problems, reverse them and repost them with the correct vendor ID or MISCN. Balances in GL 1099 & 5239 in the invalid MCCF Funds – As canceled checks are processed related to refund payments made from the old MCCF fund structure (5287, , , ), the GL transactions post against those invalid funds. These balances should be cleared by moving them to the appropriate MCCF fund in the new base BFY 05 fund structure (e.g , , , etc). To accomplish this, create a JV form (1017) with the entries needed to reverse the balances from the improper fund and move them into the correct fund. The JV should also include revenue source code(s) as they are required for a JV in FMS. The JV form should be submitted to station’s FSC trial balance accountant for approval and processing.

160 7-5 COMMON F911 VS MACRO ISSUES Subject: Procedure to change vendor for credit card reconciliation ET transactions Sandra Cole sent me the instructions below on how to change the vendor for IFCAP generated ET transactions. The change has worked successfully for her station and another station that we service. Please consider making this change as it will keep the 490G issue related to credit card reconciliations from continuing to be a problem. The credit card ET transaction vendor code (Sta. ID) can be changed to the US Bank vendor code ( ) in the IFCAP Coordinator Site Parameter. MS SECURITY CODE: 10// FISCAL REVIEW OF VRQ: NO// CARRY FORWARD 4TH QTR REQUESTS: NO// FMS-ET VENDOR CODE: 546VAH000// FMS-ET ALTERNATE ADDRESS IND.: RANGE OF % FOR RECONCILING AMT: 0// STATION NUMBER: Select IFCAP Application Coordinator Menu Option: Subject: RE: Improper balances in 490G/490P from expenditure transfers As noted in my original message, the ET transactions generated by credit card reconciliations in IFCAP improperly post against 490G in FMS. The number of credit card ET transactions generated at stations will likely make it difficult to correct the debit balance related to them. The question has come up from stations that have corrected their debit balances from other sources, but are concerned about the time needed to research the credit card ET transactions. Although clearing these improper 490G balances should be accomplished if possible, it is not expected to be completed for remaining balances determined to be related to credit card ET transactions. Subject: Improper balances in 490G/490P from expenditure transfers Improper balances in the 490G and 490P accounts have been more of an issue this year. Most of these balances are the result of expenditure transfers between funds (EW) or stations (EB) that use the station’s vendor ID instead of the vendor ID recorded on the initial expenditure transaction. In most cases the initial expenditure was to a non-federal source so the posting was a credit to 490P. When the transfer is recorded with the station’s vendor ID, the posting debits 490G on the side transferring the cost and credits 490G on the side receiving the cost. This results in an improper 490G balance. Expenditure transfers should use the vendor ID from the initial expenditure transaction whenever possible. For lump sum expenditure transactions of non-federal expenditures, using MISCN will also properly post against 490P. The other known problem in this area is the ET transactions generated by purchase card reconciliations in IFCAP. They post against 490G while the credit card transactions use the US Bank vendor ID and post to 490P. This is not an issue if the ET just moves the charge between FCP/ACCs within a fund as the posting to 490G will net out on the trial balance. It is an issue when these ET transactions move charges between BFYs or funds as it leaves the improper 490G balances.

161 7-6 Other possibilities: Kindly consider the following steps for correcting abnormal balances due to contract holdbacks: 1. Check FMS table GLTS if you find debt on 2122 and credit on 2121 or 2130 Station needs to research. 2. Research and identify the document that caused the problem. 3. Prepare 1017G journal voucher form and send to NAS Accountant for processing. Balances in accrued salaries GL 2210 in expired years (both debits and credits) SV 51 Offsetting balances in GL 2121 and 2122 Debit balances in GL 2994 The normal nationwide balance for GL 422B is a debit, but the station balance is normally a credit. We haven’t received a response on whether this needs to be corrected. Since the nationwide balance is a debit anyway, ignore this item until Supply Fund requests the corrections. Other items: Footnotes to the chart for GL accounts that can have opposite balances in expired years. Some of the most frequent examples of this are GL accts like 3107, 490G, 490P, 5200, 5201, 5700 and

162 7-7 The 5114 and 5115 (MCCF 5287**) improper balances are because the reversal of the 9/30/08 accrual entry for these in October was probably greater than the accrual entry posted at the end of the current month. Financial Policy is requesting a change in the accrual process at yearend to resolve this problem for FY09. Proposal is for the SV17 and SV 18 accrual transaction to reverse for all months except for the end of September accrual. That accrual will not reverse in early October eliminating the improper balance issue for this account.

163 7-8 The FMS transaction group completed its 2006 review of the FMS Proforma Transactions. One item on the agenda was the mixture of revenue accounts being used on the MCCF (5287**) transactions in fund category M. Some of the transactions in this category date back to the time prior to the 5287 point accounts when VA was required to return most of these collections to Treasury. The revenue transactions at that time used GL accounts 5902, 5903, and 5909 in the other revenue account series similar to the transactions in the Treasury GFR funds like 1435 and With the implementation of the 5287** point account structure and VA retaining these collections, many of the more recently added transactions in this fund category use GL 5200 and One problem arising from the use of these two sets of revenue accounts in improper balances remaining after posting collection activity. Examples from stations of situations include where a receivable was established that posted to GL 5201 in FY 05, but the collection transaction posted to GL 5902 in FY 06 resulting in an improper balance in GL In an effort to resolve this problem for future years and make the MCCF revenue postings more consistent, all of the transactions In fund category M that post to GL 5902, 5903, and 5909 were changed as listed below: All transactions with GL 5902 now use GL 5201 All transactions with GL 5903 now use GL 5200 All transactions with GL 5909 now use GL 5239 GL 5239 is a new account in FMS which was established to replace GL 5909 for tracking refunds of collections.
