How to establish a BAC for an IPAC Account
To obtain a BAC for IPAC your agency must have an 8-digit Agency Locator Code (ALC) assigned by the Department of Treasury. To determine if your agency has such an account, please check with your financial management personnel. If your agency has an ALC, obtaining a GPO BAC is relatively simple. Complete an SF-1 or Form 3001 (FY16 3001, FY17 3001) similar to this sample and have it signed by your agency's Printing Officer.
