Paying a Single Payment Vendor


Guide to Financial Operations (GFO), Chapter XII, Section 6.D – Paying a Single Payment Vendor


The Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) has updated the policy and procedures regarding standards for entering vendor name information on a voucher when paying a single payment vendor in the Statewide Financial System (SFS). The use of a standard format results in time saving and processing efficiencies for the State. Also, in the event of unclaimed funds, a standard name format increases the likelihood of locating claimants’ property and expedites the claim process.

See the Guide to Financial Operations, XII.6.D for more detail.
