Frequency with which TSP fees are computed/accumulated

In this interesting article:
https://www.tsp.gov/tsp-basics/administrative-and-investment-expenses/ there is a good discussion of expense ratios and a nice summary table for 2020.

But one thing’s missing: With what frequency are fees collected (debited) by TSP?

This is as basic a question as wondering how often interest is compounded in a savings account. Daily? Quarterly?

Daily. Because the TSP is valued daily, the expenses are assessed daily. Though I thought this was the answer, I couldn't find this on the TSP site or in any of their publications, so I asked them. I was correct, but the fact that I had to have it confirmed delayed my answer.

Thanks John. But there's a lot more to this question. And you're right - sadly, the mechanism by which fees are computed and collected by TSP is opaque. And my inquiries to staff via the "Messaging Center" have not been answered clearly at all.
Is there any way to attach a table to a post on this forum? I would like to in order to really flesh this out.
