Second Quarter Payables and Binding Encumbrances Must Be Reported by March 30

State agencies and institutions of higher education must report payables and binding encumbrances for first quarter fiscal 2017 in all open appropriations no later than March 30 to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.

The second quarter certification must be entered in the online form.

For more information, see Encumbrance Report and Lapsing of Appropriations (APS 018) (FPP A.019).

USAS and CAPPS Confidentiality Indicator Must Be Correctly Marked

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts’ ability to accurately distinguish confidential and non-confidential payments is critical in making payment information promptly available to the public. State agencies and institutions of higher education must ensure that confidential transactions are properly marked to protect payee confidentiality as stipulated by USAS and CAPPS Confidentiality Indicator (FPP E.045).

Under state law, it is the responsibility of the agency or institution submitting a transaction to determine the confidentiality of the transaction. Transactions are legally considered public unless specifically excluded by the Public Information Act. When an agency or institution marks a transaction confidential, they should be prepared to cite the law or attorney general opinion that excludes the payment from public disclosure.
