USTC J9 COVID-19 Call (14 Jul)

On today’s J9 call (14 July), J9 started out by walking through the read-ahead slides. The data showed an increase in unpaid invoices. The J9 briefer noted the increase and stated it might be due to Syncada problems in the recent past; and due to the increase in the overall volume of invoices to process.

TAMS is Coming

Does your agency work with GSA’s Transportation Audits Division for auditing of post-payment transportation invoices or are you a Transportation Service Provider (TSP) doing business with the Federal government? Coming in September, a new integrated eTool is being launched to streamline and automate the auditing process. The new Transportation Audits Management System (TAMS) will reduce cycle-times while improving performance monitoring, data tracking and usability. TAMS is replacing the Transportation Account Receivable Payable System (TARPS).

Benefits:

• Helps your agency stay compliant with pre-pay and post-pay audit requirements

• Improves the Transportation Service Provider user experience

• Enables authorized users to access reports using reliable, near “real-time” data
