Electronic Payments

Why Electronic Payments?



There's no deposit to prepare, no more lost checks or time-consuming check handling. Electronic payments mean less paperwork.


Funds transferred to your bank account are immediately available for your business needs (investment, payments, etc.). And you'll avoid the delays of checks sent through the mail.


Electronic deposit of payments eliminates delays in deposits, reduces risks arising from  unnecessary handling of funds and secures transmission of your funds through the ACH.

Timely Notification

Before payments are credited to your account, log in to your NYS Vendor Self Service account to view detailed payment information. Improve your record keeping, cash flow forecasting and investment planning.

Municipal Payee Organizations

Enrollment in OSC's Electronic Payments program is separate from enrollment in the DOT/NYS Thruway Authority Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) process. In order to receive electronic payments from both OSC and DOT/NYS Thruway Authority, Municipal Payee Organizations MUST register for both programs.

Please visit the DOT/NYS Thruway Authority Electronic Payment Guidelines page for more information.
