Credit Gateway[edit]

On September 13, 2010,[1] the Financial Management Service started to use Credit Gateway as a deposit program for the receipt of federal agency Fedwire and Automated Clearing House credit transactions.[2][3] It is an effort to modernize the collections and cash management programs of the US Department of the Treasury and is being implemented in multiple phases over the course of two years.[1][3]

The Credit Gateway is operated by a commercial bank that has been designated as a financial agent of the government.[1][3] The bank processes FMS transactions using its own infrastructure and commercial software. The transactions settle at Federal Reserve Banks, rather than at the designated commercial bank.[1][3] The Credit Gateway processes transactions in real time to FMS reporting systems, namely the Transaction Reporting System.[1][3][2]
