Electronic Refunds to the U.S. DHHS

Date Issued: 03/14/2019 Date Last Updated: 03/14/2019
Updated Guidance for Refunds related to Closed Grants for the Federal Payment Management System (PMS)

Functionality now exists for electronic payment of refunds for certain closed Federal grants from the Comptroller’s Refund Account rather than via check.

Chapter IX.8.C.A Electronic Refunds to the U.S. DHHS has been updated to reflect the procedure to prepare a refund using a new unique vendor ID and the required chartfields for the voucher.

All refunds for closed PMS grants should be paid using this new procedure effective immediately.

Any questions on this process can be directed to
