How do I create the State Auditors Data Request Files?
After the Annual Report submission deadline, the State Auditor’s Office may contact you by e-mail for a data request for additional information. To submit your data request with reports from BIAS, go to the BIAS Help Center and search Creating SAO Data Request Files for instructions.
Go to Transactions > Prints Transactions
- Select the Year reporting on.
- Click Auditor
- BIAS will generate the TXT and CSV files, if necessary, in your report folder to be sent to the SAO.
The files will save in the correct format for the Auditors.
BIAS will generate more files than needs to be submitted. Only submit the requested Transaction, Transaction_Detail, and Utility Balances files, if needed.
Follow the instructions provided by the SAO in their email to transmit the files.
