The Comptroller of Public Accounts adopts amendments to §5.210 concerning uniform statewide accounting system, without changes to the proposed text as published in the May 18, 2018, issue of the Texas Register (43 TexReg 3231). These amendments update the definitions and the internet address language listed in this section.

The amendments to subsection (b) update the format of the definitions listed in this subsection, without changing the substance of the definitions, so that they are presented in the same format as other definitions listed in Chapter 5; and change "USAS" to "USPS" in paragraph (7) to clarify that SPRS is a system used by state agencies that do not use USPS as their internal payroll and human resources system.

The amendments to subsection (c) delete the internet addresses listed in paragraphs (1) and (8) that are out-of-date and replace them with language that clarifies that the comptroller's user guides, manuals, and policy statements are accessible on the comptroller's website.

No comments were received regarding adoption of the amendment.

The section is adopted under Government Code, §2101.035(a), which allows the comptroller to adopt rules for the effective operation of the uniform statewide accounting system.

This section implements Government Code, §2101.035, regarding the administration of the uniform statewide accounting system.

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the adoption and found it to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.
