State Agency Payments Search

State agency employees with appropriate security access can access the State Agency Payments Search web application to research payments issued by your agency. Security requirements include access to a statewide mainframe system and the appropriate TINS payment inquiry security profile. If you have access to a mainframe system but do not have TINS payment inquiry access, you will not be able to access your agency’s payment information on this application.

The web application provides the same information that TINS payment inquiry screens provide, excluding payroll payments, for the current and past three fiscal years. It displays payments issued by:

  • Your primary (employing) agency.
  • Other agencies for which your agency is a governing agency.

If you have access to other agencies, they are listed in the Agency Number dropdown field within the application.

Payments issued from the agency’s local funds are not included and cannot be searched on this application.

Search results may be downloaded to a printable text file or a raw data comma-separated value (CSV) file.
