The Automated Timber Sales Accounting system (ATSA) tracks payments for timber sales and produces billing information and Timber Purchasers’ Statements of Account. The information collected enables the Forest Service to operate a billing and accounts receivable system in a systematic and efficient manner for the entire Agency. A secondary purpose for the information collection is to have the information in a centralized location so that it can be used for management purposes in a timely and efficiently manner.
At the USDA Forest Service, the SURE SECURE TEAM is staffed to meet the following objectives:
- Support the ATSA System for business processes and related test plans
- Systems Acceptance Testing (after computer programming has been completed to enhance the ATSA system to meet the new changed requirements)
