ASAP – U.S. Treasury’s Automated Standard Application for Payments
In Federal Fiscal Year 2012, the Service changed financial systems from the Federal Financial System (FFS) to the Financial and Business Management System (FBMS). As part of this transition, we moved grant and cooperative agreement award payment management to the U.S. Treasury’s Automated Standard Application for Payments (ASAP). ASAP is a Federal-wide system.
