MEMORANDUM 2003 - 33

August 4, 2003

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

Attention: Agency Heads, Chief Fiscal Officers and Business Managers
Subject: Prioritizing Vendor Payments

I. Purpose: Advise agencies to prioritize the processing of vendor payments.

With the anticipation of a budget being in place shortly, state agencies are encouraged to establish a plan that prioritizes payments to vendors. We are suggesting a plan similar to the following:

The plan above is just an example and the list is not all-inclusive. An agency's priority listing will depend on its operating requirements. Additionally, agencies should comply with contractual and encumbrance requirements in order to minimize - if not eliminate - delays in payment processing.

II. Questions: For questions regarding payment processing, please call (860) 702-3400.
