What’s New

Payment Scheduling and Advance Payment Policy Update

The Comptroller’s office recognizes certain vendors may require payments before the 30-day period in response to a disaster declared by the governor. If an agency must process an early payment, it must document the business justification in terms of the disaster event. See Payment Scheduling for more information.

While a state agency may make an advance payment for goods or services in response to a disaster declared by the governor, the payment must be necessary and serve a proper public purpose, and the agency must be able to document the justification for the Comptroller’s office. See Advance Payments for more information.

Update on Treasury Operations and Warrant Distribution

Deposits and hours: The state’s treasury is accepting check and cash deposits during the coronavirus outbreak. Teller window hours are Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–2 p.m. All deposits received during business hours will post to USAS effective that day.

Warrant distribution: Payment Services will continue to distribute warrants Monday–Friday, 8–10 a.m. at the Lyndon B. Johnson Building, room G-17.

  • If agencies need to alter their warrant pickup schedule (for example, to reduce their pickup days), email tins.mail@cpa.texas.gov with the agency number and the altered schedule.
  • If agencies want to pick up their warrants instead of having the Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) deliver them, email tins.mail@cpa.texas.gov with the request. The agency representative picking up warrants must be on the Agency Authorization for Warrant Pickup form.
  • Agencies that have warrants delivered by SPD can call SPD at 512-463-3440 to adjust their delivery schedule.
