Event Details:

Debt Management will host two webinar workshops on The Annual Debt Certification Process on Tuesday, July 25, 2017, from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. EDT, and 1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT. These sessions are being offered to federal employees who were unable to attend our 2017 Annual Governmentwide Federal Receivables Management Symposium.

The webinar is the same as the on-site session at that event, so there is no need to participate if you attended that session. There is no charge for this training.

The Annual Agreement to Certify Federal Nontax Debts covers referral of delinquent debts under both the Treasury Offset Program (TOP) and the Cross-Servicing Program. Agencies are required to provide written certification to the Bureau of Fiscal Service for each debt (or group of debts) referred for collection.

Debt certification confirms that referred debts are delinquent, valid, legally enforceable, have no legal bars to collection, and that the creditor agency has completed all requisite due process. This training will also highlight upcoming changes to the certification agreement and process.

Registration is now closed for this webinar.
