USAS Coding Instructions

41 Disbursement Maintenance

Centrally defined. The Disbursement Maintenance (41) screen allows central users to change the disbursement method indicator (DMI) for all transactions in a payment document or for all transactions for a single vendor/payee number and mail code within a payment document. The most common use of this screen is to change the DMI to E (Expedite) to override a future payment due date on posted transaction. In other cases, the DMI may be changed to H (Hold) to delay payment of a document that is posted and error free.

The DMI is originally entered on the batch header or left blank on the batch header to default to R. All transactions within this batch will be created with the same DMI as the batch header. Once entered, the DMI may only be changed using the 41 screen. This ensures that the DMI will remain the same for all transactions for a single vendor/payee number and mail code within a given payment document.

  • Agencies may use this screen for inquiry purposes.
  • If this screen is accessed from an accounting event (AE) table inquiry screen or a transaction entry screen for a posted transaction that includes the document level information, then AGENCY, DOC NO and FY will be carried over from that screen.
  • Vendor/payee level DMI changes are not allowed for pay-in-full documents. For a list of pay-in-full documents types, go online in USAS to the Titles Profile (D53) and enter PPØ3 in the TABLE ID field. Enter N (Next) in the ACTION field to scroll through the listing.

ACTION (Required)
Enter the one-character action code.

C Change an existing record*
R Recall

Note: Record must be recalled before this action can be performed.

AGENCY (Control key – Required)
Enter the three-digit agency number assigned to the agency. This is the document agency.

DOC NO (Control key – Required)
Enter the document number.

FY (Control key – Required)
Enter the two-digit fiscal year (FY). A fiscal year is a 12-month period used to identify the accounting year. Fiscal years are used in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)-based reports. The FY for the state of Texas begins Sept. 1 and ends Aug. 31.


Note: This is a split field. The first field is the vendor/payee number (VEN NO), and the second field is the vendor/payee mail code (MAIL CODE).

Enter the 11-digit vendor/payee number and the three-digit mail code associated with the document to be recalled. The vendor/payee number field is used to specify a vendor/payee within a multi-vendor/payee document. This allows the DMI to be changed at a vendor/payee mail code level within the document instead of for the entire document.

The mail code identifies the vendor/payee’s mailing address or electronic payment routing instructions for payment distribution. A single vendor/payee may have multiple mail codes.

DMI (System generated)
Displays the disbursement method indicator to be used in payment processing. The DMI may be changed to one of the following values.

E Expedite warrant*
H Hold transaction
R Release for an automated warrant

*Note: For the DMI to be changed to E, the transaction must be in either edit mode 2 or 4.
