Understanding the Green Book & ACH Payments
Learn the differences between the Green Book and the ACH Rules, with a focus on enrollment, payment processing, reclamations and limiting your liability.

The Bureau of Fiscal Services (formally Financial Management Services) manages the payments from the majority of the Federal Government Agencies. The Green Book is a comprehensive guide for financial institutions that receive ACH payments from and send payment to the federal government.

In this session we will discuss the differences between the Green Book and the ACH Rules. We’ll focus on enrollment, payment processing and reclamations. The reclamation process can be confusing and can have a financial impact on your bank. Join us to learn about your liability and how to limit it.


Attend this class and learn:

  • The different enrollment methods for government payments
  • Where to look for contacts within the different government agencies
  • How to handle notifications of change
  • How to limit your liability on Federal Government Reclamations
