Payment Scheduling – Comptroller Policy
Exemption for Payments of $5,000 or Less

Payments of $5,000 or less are exempted from mandatory payment scheduling. Agencies may use their discretion when scheduling payment on an invoice that is $5,000 or less and make those payments as soon as the transactions are ready to be processed.

For groups of invoices covered by a monthly statement, the statement amount must be $5,000 or less for the invoices to qualify for agency discretion on distribution.

Agencies may choose to process these payments for distribution at the latest possible time as long as prompt payment law interest is not accrued.


Money owed to a vendor.
