For most state government payments, the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts plays the role of both bank and accountant. The Comptroller’s Fiscal Management Division processes payments and maintains the Uniform Statewide Accounting System (USAS).
The process includes these steps:
- The payee acquires a Texas Identification Number that the state uses to track payments
- The payee provides goods or services to a state agency and submits an invoice.
- The agency uses the invoice to prepare and submit a voucher to USAS that includes where the payment should be sent based on the payee’s Payment Options.
- The Fiscal Management Division pays the bill according to state law. For more information, see State Payment Requirements and Payments On Hold.
- Payees can readily track Payment Information. Here is How to Search Payments Online in the Search State Payments Issued application.
