Cost Allocation System (CAS)
The Cost Allocation System (CAS) creates cost allocation plans using data in the state-owned accounting system called the Agency Financial Reporting System (AFRS). For example, the system tracks expenditures related to state assistance programs and federal grants. The system uses real data, not estimates, so an agency’s direct and overhead expenditures are cost-allocated as they occur.
To gain access to the system, you need a mainframe logon ID obtained from the Washington Technology Solutions (WaTech) Customer Support at 360-586-1000 or from your agency security administrator (for large agencies like Department of Social and Health Services and Department of Enterprise Services).
