USAS Internal Transaction File Maintenance and Super Security Delete Process

FPP Q.001


Applicable to

State agencies and institutions of higher education


On a daily basis, state agencies and institutions of higher education should review their Uniform Statewide Accounting System (USAS) Internal Transaction (IT) File transactions and complete the maintenance necessary to keep the file current. Staff should refer to the USAS VIEW BATCH HEADERS (530) screen and take the correct processing or deletion actions.

The USAS IT File is a temporary file used to store data records awaiting approval, correction or deletion. When agencies and institutions maintain their IT file on a daily basis, it makes for a smaller file that:

  • Improves online response time
  • Helps reduce nightly processing cycle time
  • Ensures transactions and payments entered by the cutoff time will process the day they are entered
