USAS Batch Posting Sequence
The timing of posting/processing of a transaction can be critical. For example, cash disbursements should not process before the day’s receipts. Similarly, you need a budget before expenditures can be processed against an appropriation.
A transaction will be picked up in the overnight cycle (batch input, edit, update [IEU]) as long as it has been balanced and released. During cycle, the timing of the posting/processing of a transaction is determined by:
- Batch sort posting sequence (see table below)
- Batch agency
- Batch date
- Batch number
- Document agency
- Current document number
- Fiscal year
- Posting sequence indicator (from the 28A profile)
- Batch sequence number
- Batch Edit Mode 2 allows for immediate posting to the financial tables – Batch Edit Mode 2 transactions are not included in batch IEU.
- Batch type 8 – Balanced journal voucher transactions – can only be entered in Batch Edit Mode 2, and therefore is not included in the table below.
|Batch Type||Posting Sequence||Title|
|T||T*||Treasury Division initiated|
|P||2||Payment Services generated transactions|
|W||4||Payment Processing, Payroll|
*Alpha posting sequence indicators process before numeric posting sequence indicators.
For a list of T-codes that can be used with each batch type, see T-Codes Sorted by Batch Type with Document Type in the USAS T-Code Reference Guide.
