Where the Money Goes Requirements

FPP G.004

Confidentiality Indicator Field

To ensure payments in Where the Money Goes are treated correctly with respect to confidentiality, agencies are required to appropriately flag transactions as confidential in USAS and CAPPS Financials. For detailed information about marking USAS transactions confidential, see USAS and CAPPS Financials Confidentiality Indicator (FPP E.045).

Note: The liability for the release of confidential information due to an incorrect confidential indicator lies with the agency submitting the confidential transaction.

Transactions will be treated as follows on Where the Money Goes reports and the Data Center downloads depending on what value an agency enters in the confidentiality indicator field.
