Check on PMI

Hello SIS team,

Currently we have a bilateral billing with a partner and we use the PMI (X for match Q for non match).

The PMI are sent in the IDEC file and are checked by ATPCO.

As we are in bilateral agreement, the ATPCO checks, change our PMI to X (No match).

Consequently, our Partner receives an incorrect PMI.

 

For SIS, we have planned to use, in order to differentiate the bilateral billings, a FF in the field “Agreement Indicator Supplied”.

 

Consequently for SIS, we will fill “FF” in the field “Agreement Indicator Supplied” and X or Q in the field “Original PMI”.

 

And here is our concern.

As the PMIs X and Q are part of the F&F AIA, how these PMIs are going to be interpreted by ATPCO during his verification?

Even if, we have filled “FF” in the field “Agreement Indicator Supplied” the Original PMI sent will be checked by ATPCO?

The field “Validated PMI” will be filled only for the F&F AIA billings (“Agreement Indicator Supplied” I or J)?

 

Many thanks to your help

Dear Jacques,

 

Please find the answers (in blue) to your questions as follows:

 

As the PMIs X and Q are part of the F&F AIA, how these PMIs are going to be interpreted by ATPCO during his verification?

Any special processing done by ATPCO for bilateral billings will be known only by ATPCO; therefore we would suggest that you direct this question to ATPCO.

 

Even if, we have filled “FF” in the field “Agreement Indicator Supplied” the Original PMI sent will be checked by ATPCO?

Provided both AF and your bilaterally billed partner are flagged as BVC participants in SIS; this record will be sent to ATPCO for BVC processing. As for how ATPCO will process such records, this will need to be clarified with ATPCO.

 

The field “Validated PMI” will be filled only for the F&F AIA billings (“Agreement Indicator Supplied” I or J)?

The field “Validated PMI” is not limited to only F&F AIA billings. It will be populated with whatever value is provided back by ATPCO in the BVC process.

 

Hope this helps.

Best regards
