OMB Memorandum M-17-26

OMB Memo M-17-26 is meant to reduce reporting burdens for the Federal Government.  In particular, CCCM would like to call your attention to the following section of the memo which relates to the GSA SmartPay program:  

Modified – Financial Management:
Government Charge Card Reporting pursuant to Appendix B of OMB Circular A-123 – Chapter 5 of Appendix B to OMB Circular A-123 (2009) on “Statistical Reporting” in section 5.3.1 and “Narrative Reporting” in section 5.3.2 are now optional and not required to be submitted to OMB. Agencies are still required to maintain statistical and narrative information for their own use and management of their charge card program. OMB is finalizing an update to Appendix B of OMB Circular A-123 (2009). This update will streamline reporting requirements and consolidate existing requirements in a central location. In addition, agencies are still required to report purchase card violations pursuant to OMB Memorandum M-13-21 (Implementation of the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012).
