Do Not Set Effective End Date on Certain RTIs

This is an important reminder about coding on the USAS Recurring Transaction Profile (55). Do not set an effective end date until after Sept. 26 on certain Recurring Transaction Indexes (RTIs) used during the interagency reconciliation process for the annual financial report (AFR).

Interagency Transaction Voucher (ITV) transactions must process successfully during the interagency reconciliation process for the AFR. An RTI (receiving) agency that sets an effective end date on the 55 profile will prevent a transaction (paying) agency from processing any ITV transactions past that effective end date.

Example: A transaction entered on Sept. 2 using an RTI with an effective end date of Aug. 31 would not process, even if the effective date on the transaction were backdated to Aug. 31. To avoid problems, the RTI agency should not set an effective end date on the 55 profile until after the completion of the interagency reconciliation process.

The Comptroller’s office recommends that agencies leave the effective end dates on RTIs blank unless there is an explicit need to include a date.

For more information, see the ITV/RTI Process USAS FAQs.
