Reconciliation and Certification

NFC customers can depend on our ability to not only process salary payments timely every two weeks; they can rely on our certification and reconciliation process to ensure that those payments are accurate.

Our dedicated staff reconciles salary-related payment vouchers and certifies them for release and issuance through the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (BFS). This process includes a daily reconciliation of both daily and bi-weekly salary related payment vouchers from our manual pay systems and the payment vouchers generated through our biweekly payroll processing cycle. In addition, as part of our payroll certification process NFC reconciles gross wage expenditures for USDA-serviced agencies and the associated payroll accounting records generated by PACS and released for update to USDA's corporate accounting system. We also certify OPM 2812 records generated from our biweekly payroll cycle.

NFC services also include conducting payment traces on all EFT salary payment claims of non-receipt and certifying SF-1184s (stop payments) with BFS.
