Expedite Requests


The Office of The State Comptroller (OSC) has new guidance regarding expedite requests. In certain limited cases, an agency may request that BSE expedite our review and approval of vouchers to create a payment sooner than the standard process allows.

In these limited situations, the agency must be able to demonstrate to BSE that expediting the review and approval of vouchers will provide a significant, material benefit to the vendor or State. These situations may include, but are not limited to, emergencies (e.g., public health and safety), vendor cash flow concerns, or Prompt Payment Interest savings. For expedite requests, the agency must contact BSE at [email protected].

See the Guide to Financial Operations (GFO), Chapter XII, Section 7.D - Expedite Requests, for more detail.
