    Hi Kevin - Thank you for your questions.

    FAO is normally positive for an obligation and negative for a de-obligation.

    TOA is normally negative for an obligation and positive for a de-obligation.
    Specifically, in the context of the TOA, obligations are increased by a credit to a USSGL account. This credit increase should be shown as a negative on File C. Decreases to obligations are debits to USSGL accounts and should be shown as a positive amount on File C.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
