Post Payment Modernization Initiative

The Post Payment Modernization Initiative (PPMI) is the work by the Bureau of Fiscal Service to strengthen, re-engineer and modernize essential operations that support the full lifecycle of post-payment processing.

The new system being developed by this initiative is the Payment Information View of Transactions (PIVOT) application. PIVOT will merge and replace functions now performed in several legacy applications: Payments, Claims, and Enhanced Reconciliation (PACER) system, Treasury Check Information System (TCIS), Treasury Offset Program (TOP) Control System (TCS), and Treasury Receivable, Accounting, and Collection System (TRACS).

PIVOT will support all Treasury Disbursed Offices (TDO) and only Non-Treasury Disbursed Offices (NTDO) that are Central Accounting Reporting System (CARS) reporters in Governmentwide Accounting (GWA). NTDOs will need to convert to a CARS reporter by the first quarter of Calendar Year 2022 to use the application.

It will serve as system of record for payments, claims, and returns, and will feature a standard cancellation file format for agency credits through a fixed or JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format. As part of its innovative, transparent, and value-driven approach, PIVOT is using Agile methodology on an enterprise Cloud architecture.

The first focus of this initiative will be to replace aspects of the TCIS system and then address the other systems. The timetable for implementing TCIS functions in PIVOT is expected during the first quarter of Calendar Year 2022. Updates will be posted on this website as they become available.
