AGENDA ITEMS:

Gwen Marshman (FMS) reviewed handouts for the USSGL Proprietary Account Attribute Definition Report (ADR) for Parts 1 and 2 (fiscal 2010 and 2011).

Fiscal 2010 ADR

  • Revised attribute names to include “code” or “indicator” for all except the attribute “Trading Partner.” This was done for the Common Government Accounting Classification (CGAC) system and to ensure conformity for the data registry.
  • In column “Domain,” revised domain values for Budget Subfunction Code and Trading Partner attributes for consistency.
  • In column “System Characters,” revised Covered/NotCovered Code and Entity/NonEntity Indicator attributes for consistency.
  • Deleted column “Supplied By” because it does not provide useful information.
  • Added column “Treasury System” to provide references to FACTS I or Non FACTS I. The handout showed a blank space for Covered/NotCovered Code and Entity/NonEntity Indicator attributes. The IRC would like to see “N/A” instead of a blank space.
  • Revised domain value “Y” from “E” for Entity/NonEnt attribute because investments are purchased with deposit funds, which are non-entity assets for USSGL accounts:

    1342, “Interest Receivable — Investments”

    1346, “Allowance for Loss on Interest Receivable — Investments”

    1610, “Investments in U.S. Treasury Securities Issued by the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1611, “Discount on U.S. Treasury Securities Issued by the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1612, “Premium on U.S. Treasury Securities Issued by the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1621, “Discounts on Securities Other Than the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1622, “Premium on Securities Other Than the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1623, “Amortization of Discount and Premium on Securities Other Than the Bureau of the Public Debt"

    1630, “Investments in U.S. Treasury Zero Coupon Bonds Issued by the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1631, “Discount on U.S. Treasury Zero Coupon Bonds Issued by the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1633, “Amortization of Discount on U.S. Treasury Zero Coupon Bonds Issued by the Bureau of the Public Debt”

    1638, “Market Adjustment — Investments in U.S. Treasury Zero Coupon Bonds”

    1639, “Contra Market Adjustment — Investments in U.S. Treasury Zero Coupon Bonds”

    1690, “Other Investments”

  • Deleted domain values “X” and “T” for Exchange/NonExchange attribute because this attribute is not associated with receivables. This was an error in the last USSGL TFM release for USSGL accounts:

    1360, “Penalties and Fines Receivable — Not Otherwise Classified”

    1361, “Penalties and Fines Receivable — Loans”

    1363, “Penalties and Fines Receivable — Taxes”

    1365, “Allowance for Loss on Penalties and Fines Receivable — Loans”

    1380, “Loans Receivable — Troubled Assets Relief Program”

    1381, “Interest Receivable — Troubled Assets Relief Program”

    1385, “Allowance for Loss on Interest Receivable — Troubled Assets Relief Program”

    1389, “Allowance for Subsidy — Loans — Troubled Assets Relief Program”

    1642, “Preferred Stock Accounted for Under the Provisions of the Federal Credit Reform Act”

    1643, “Allowance for Subsidy — Preferred Stock Accounted for Under the Provisions of the Federal Credit Reform Act”

    *5923, “Valuation Change in Investments — Beneficial Interest in Trust”

    *Note: The handout indicated domain value “X” for Exchange/NonExch and a blank space for Cust/Noncust attributes. This was revised to domain value “T” for Exchange/NonExch attribute and domain value “S” for Cust/Noncust attribute.

  • Revised domain value “Y” from “C” for Covered/NotCov attribute because deposit funds are not covered for USSGL account 2400, “Liability for Nonfiduciary Deposit Funds, Clearing Accounts, and Undeposited Collections.”

  • On the Additional Information, page IV-14, of the handout:

    — “Proprietary” was added to Note 1.
