Prompt Payment Law:

Agencies are responsible for ensuring that each payment is treated correctly according to the prompt payment law. A state agency’s payment is due on the 30th day after the latest of:

  • The date the agency receives the goods under the contract,
  • The date the vendor completes performing its services for the agency, or
  • The date the agency receives an invoice for the goods or services.

If an invoice is emailed to you directly, you should record the date received on the invoice before sending it to Accounting Services. Please note that invoices can be emailed to
