The Office of the Budget has introduced an online service that will provide most vendors with an immediate status report on your invoice, with no need to pick up the telephone.
Our new Vendor Payment Inquiry* service allows you to easily view the status of an invoice submitted to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for payment. (NOTE: If you do business with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB), your payment information will not appear on this website. Please check the PLCB website for payment information at www.lcb.state.pa.us and look under the section titled "For Industry Partners" for additional information and instructions.) To research your payment using our Vendor Payment Inquiry service, you will need to provide the following information:
Invoice Number (required) - Enter your company’s invoice number as printed on the invoice.
Invoice Date (required) - Enter the date of your invoice as printed on the invoice in the format MM/DD/YYYY.
Invoice Amount (required) - Enter the amount of your invoice in dollars and cents.
SAP Vendor Number (optional) - Enter your six-digit commonwealth-issued vendor number, if desired.
After you have entered the required information listed above, select the Submit button. You will receive one of the following responses:
Invoice Received - This means that your invoice has been received by the commonwealth and is ready for processing.
In Process - This means that your invoice has been received by the commonwealth and is currently being reviewed for payment. This step must occur before the invoice is approved for payment.
Cleared for Payment - This means that your invoice has been approved by the Office of the Budget and has been presented for payment. If your invoice remains in this status for more than two weeks, please see below under IF YOU STILL NEED HELP.
Paid by Treasury - This means that your invoice has been paid. Specific payment details will be included such as payment date and payment method (check or Automated Clearing House).
The search criteria you entered did not result in any records found.
