Vendor payment remittance information is available via the Internet using the Financial Management Services' Vendor Express Program external link. "Follow the link to the Internet Payment Platform (IPP formerly PAID)" external link. Vendor payments are made in accordance with the Prompt Payment Act external link. Public Debt issues 1099 tax forms in January of each year to vendors who have been paid for services during the previous calendar year, regardless of the type of organization.
