USAS and CAPPS Confidentiality Indicator Must Be Correctly Marked

To make payment information available to the public promptly, the Comptroller’s office must be able to distinguish confidential and non-confidential payments. State agencies and institutions of higher education must ensure that confidential transactions are properly marked to protect payee confidentiality as specified in USAS and CAPPS Confidentiality Indicator (FPP E.045).

The agency or institution submitting a transaction is responsible for determining confidentiality. Transactions are legally considered public unless specifically excluded by the Public Information Act (Texas Government Code, Chapter 552).

An agency or institution that marks a transaction as confidential should be prepared to cite the law or attorney general opinion that excludes the payment from public disclosure.

Reminder – Agencies Must Request Unclaimed Funds by May 31

Unclaimed property turned over to the state includes property that may belong to state agencies or institutions of higher education. If agencies and institutions do not claim property by May 31, the Comptroller’s office deposits the money into unappropriated General Revenue (GR).

See the Unclaimed Property Annual Notification for more, including contact information for the Comptroller’s Unclaimed Property Division.
