FPP A.012


Applicable to

State agencies.


The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (Comptroller’s office) requires state agencies to transfer amounts from their direct appropriations to centrally established appropriations in the Uniform Statewide Accounting System (USAS) to fund their capital budget appropriations. Agencies process payments from these unique appropriations.


Transferring capital budget appropriations into different appropriation numbers within USAS allows the Comptroller’s office to:

  • Verify appropriations are spent only for capital budget items.
  • Track transfers between capital budget line items.
  • Approve reappropriation of unexpended balances between appropriation years (AY).
