Many of the A&M System member campuses process student payments through Touchnet or similar programs. The State of Texas requires that they first verify the payee has not been placed on the hold payment list maintained at the State level. FAMIS Program VBAR280 will process a file of 121 transactions and produce a report of any students / vendors currently on state hold.
A batch header is not required for this file. The only transaction required is the 121 transaction. If other transactions are included in the batch, they will be ignored by the program.
Fields with an asterisk (*) in the REQ column are required. Other fields are optional and not necessary for processing of Program VBAR280.
A valid SSN must be used to check against the state files.
