ASAP Month-End Account Reconciliation
All DOJ-related ASAP accounts will be temporarily suspended the last 3 business days of the month to carry out required account reconciliation activities. Grantees that attempt to drawdown in ASAP will receive an “Error 839: No accounts found matching criteria” message and will not be able to request or receive drawdowns during this period.
ASAP is the shared services payment system used by the Department of the Treasury that replaced the Grants Payment Request System for grants payments. Through this platform, recipients of DOJ grant awards and other forms of federal assistance are able to request and receive payments for grants managed through JustGrants.
To learn more about ASAP, see the ASAP Resources page.
Based on the recommendation of the Office of Management and Budget and the Chief Financial Officers Council, DOJ selected ASAP from two approved shared service grant payment systems. The October 15, 2020, launch date was selected to align the release of JustGrants and the transition to ASAP and DOJ's financial management system. The Grants Payment Request System is no longer accessible (as of September 23, 2020).
Yes, all DOJ award recipients must use ASAP for payment requests. The Grants Payment Request System is no longer accessible (as of September 23, 2020).
The Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service—ISIM PP will send two emails to the entity’s System for Award Management (SAM) Electronic Business Point of Contact (E-Biz POC)—one containing a username and one containing a temporary password and a link to create a new password.
After receiving both emails, the POC must complete the following steps:
- Use the username and temporary password provided to log in to the ISIM system to change your password and complete your security questions.
- Log in to ASAP using your username and your new password.
- Accept the ASAP terms.
- Select “1 notification awaiting review.”
- Select “Unread” from the Notification Status drop-down menu, then select “Continue.”
- Select the magnifying glass on the right side of the screen to view the Enrollment Notifications.
To learn more about the ASAP registration process, please see the ASAP Registration Checklist.
To identify your E-Biz POC, visit SAM.gov, select “Search Records,” enter your entity information, and then view “POCs” (including the E-Biz POC) within the Entity Profile.
Yes. The SAM E-Biz POC has been designated as the ASAP POC to complete enrollment and will receive the ASAP enrollment emails. During the enrollment process, the POC can add the appropriate users to the ASAP roles.
Entities new to DOJ will be invited to enroll in ASAP during the award notification and acceptance process. If you have not yet received your ASAP enrollment invitation, please check your spam filters to see if the email was filtered out. If the ASAP enrollment invitation is not in your spam folder, contact the OCFO Customer Service Center by email at [email protected] or by phone 800-458-0786 to request that your invitation be resent.
Entities can also check the status of their enrollment (including whether their enrollment has been initiated) by contacting [email protected] and providing their entity’s DUNS and EIN.
For ASAP, legitimate emails from the Department of the Treasury will be sent from the Bureau of the Fiscal Service–ISIM PP [[email protected] or [email protected]]. The Department of the Treasury uses a standard template as the basis for its outreach to the SAM E-Biz POCs. Two enrollment emails—one containing a username and one containing a temporary password and a link to create a new password—will be sent to your entity’s SAM Electronic Business Point of Contact (E-Biz POC) from the Department of Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service.
DOJ award recipients can contact the OCFO Customer Service Center by email at [email protected] or by phone 800–458–0786 and provide their entity’s DUNS and EIN to determine whether their entity already has an existing enrollment with ASAP.
The ease and convenience offered to our grantees and award recipients through the ability to use their existing ASAP accounts is one of the main reasons behind the transition from the Grants Payment Request System to our new payment management system. Your entity’s ASAP point of contact (POC) and ASAP Financial Official (FO) will receive notification of enrollment into DOJ’s ALC 1504001. The enrollment process for existing ASAP entities is simplified and only requires establishing a banking account(s) for DOJ’s ALC 1504001.
If your entity FO wants to use the existing banking account(s) for ALC 1504001, the FO should not click the link on the ASAP home page. They should Click Enrollments > Modify/Delete Banking Data to enable the current banking account(s) for DOJ award payments.
If your entity FO wants to add new banking account(s) for ALC 1504001, the FO can click the link on the ASAP home page or Click Enrollments > Add Banking Data.
This simplified enrollment step will then associate DOJ awards to your entity’s profile and users.
- The Initial Point of Contact is added by the federal agency, and can self-designate all roles and create additional users.
- The Point of Contact (POC) adds users or modifies their roles.
- The Head of Organization (HOO) approves changes to users and their roles.
- The Financial Official (FO) enters and maintains banking account information.
- The Authorizing Official (AO) adds Payment Requestors and Inquirer Only users.
- The Payment Requester initiates payment requests.
- An Inquirer Only can only run reports and cannot hold any other roles.

Yes. The Point of Contact can fill all of the roles, assign multiples roles to one person, or assign each role to a different person.
A recipient entity can have only one POC in ASAP. However, there can be multiple users with different roles.
A recipient entity should contact the OCFO Customer Service Center by email at [email protected] or by phone 800–458–0786 for assistance in changing their ASAP POC.
DOJ's ALC is 15040001.
The ASAP account ID is the same as the DOJ award number in JustGrants (without the dashes).
