Authorization for Warrant Pickup
The Agency Authorization for Warrant Pickup form (74-189) (login required) PDF allows an agency to tell the Comptroller’s office how to distribute its warrants to the agency:
- Agency representatives or their delivery service can pick up warrants in person at the Comptroller’s office
- The Statewide Procurement Division of the Comptroller’s office can deliver warrants to the agency
- The Comptroller can mail the warrants
Every two years, the Comptroller’s office requires agencies to renew the form. The agency’s chief fiscal officer (CFO) or agency head must sign the form, as well as all agency representatives authorized to pick up warrants from the Comptroller’s office. Signatures must be hand-written original signatures; electronic signatures must not be used. Agencies and institutions may return the completed and signed form via:
- U.S. mail, or
- A PDF copy in an encrypted email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, the form must be updated to change the distribution method or add or delete authorized personnel. Agencies are required to retain a copy of the completed and signed form.
