Accessing Remittance Information for any NYSED Payment

As of April 1, 2012 the new Statewide Financial System becomes operational and remittance inquiries made after that date should refer to the information below.

Such information and inquiries about the status of a purchase order or invoice may now be made through the New York State Vendor Self-Service application. This online application is also the preferred method to perform maintenance to a vendor’s account information.  School Districts will no longer receive separate email notification of payments.

The primary contact at each school district should already have received an email (latest sent March 5, 2012) with the Vendor Self-Service Portal (URL) address, and other information including a User ID number and generic Password for establishing a Vendor Self-Service account. To sign into the Vendor Self Service system, with your Password and User ID number, go to: https://vendor.sfs.ny.gov/ external link

If your Primary Contact did not receive the email or you have encountered other problems when logging in, contact the SFS help desk at helpdesk@sfs.ny.gov or call 1-855-233-8363.  For general information about the Vendor Self-Service system visit the Vendor Management Unit site at: http://www.osc.state.ny.us/vendor_management/index.htm external link

The history of payments made prior to April 2012 is still available by using the Office of the State Comptroller’s Vendor Information Inquiry link, https://www.osc.state.ny.us/vendors/index.htm external link. Click on "View information about a current payment". This will take you to the OSC Payment Information Inquiry page.  You will need to enter any trace number from a previously issued payment and the district's municipality number. This will bring up a page showing the (previous) payment information; however, if you click on History of Payments and enter a specific date range, you can view all payments that have been made to the district during that time.  This is the same information you had received on the Advance Notification of Payment emails.
