The Office of the Budget provides an online Vendor Payment Inquiry1 service that enables most vendors to obtain the status of any invoice submitted to the commonwealth for payment (NOTE: Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) supplier payment information does not appear in the Vendor Payment Inquiry service; please visit www.lcb.state.pa.us and look under "Industry Partners" for vendor log-in options and additional information on obtaining payment information). To see the status of an invoice using the Vendor Payment Inquiry service, you must provide:
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.
