Comptroller Kevin Lembo and Department of Administrative
Services (DAS) Commissioner Donald J. DeFronzo today announced that ePay - a
joint project that transitions nearly all state employees to paperless digital
pay statements - is complete.
The move to ePay eliminates the need to print and distribute tens of thousands of paper checks or direct deposit advices to virtually all employees across each branch of state government.
While ePay will provide some cost savings over time related to the cost of paper, printing and labor - approximately $70,000 annually - the primary goal is to advance the state's digital capabilities and more efficiently manage the state's physical resources and personnel.
Comptroller Lembo said, "This project promotes greater government efficiency and smart use of technology. My office will continue to work towards advancing the state's digital proficiency and identifying ways to improve the state's business practices to operate more efficiently. This completed transition to digital pay statements means more sensible use of our materials and workforce."
Commissioner DeFronzo said, "Comptroller Lembo's staff and the staff here at DAS have worked diligently to implement the ePay system. Administrative improvements in state government, such as this one, allow us to better utilize available technology, resulting in a more efficient and productive use of our limited resources."
As a result of ePay, approximately 51,541 employees across state government will now access their paychecks electronically, rather than receive direct deposit advices.
