Do I need a Treasury Account Symbol (TAS)? Where do I find my TAS? What is a TAS?

All customers for which the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB) initiates an IPAC payment transaction are required to populate the Treasury Account Symbol (TAS) field within e-QIP, which identifies the submitting agency's fund account that will be used to pay for the requested background investigation.  The Component TAS is a financial code, assigned by the Department of the Treasury, comprised of many separate, component pieces / sub-fields.  Please refer to the Component TAS Helpful Tips and e-QIP Format Conversions document (PDF file) for additional information.
