SUBJECT: Vendor Mail Out

The Office of Statewide Reporting and Accounting Policy (OSRAP) recently sent a mail out to all active and CFMS Pending Inactive vendors informing them of our WEB remittance application and encouraging them to enroll in EFT. Only vendors at these statuses with activity to their vendor record or issued contract, order or payments in the last 18 months were sent the mail out. Also, as new vendors are activated they will receive the mail out. A copy of the mail out is attached for your information. An EFT enrollment form and instructions was included in the mail out to the vendors. You do not have the form and instructions in your attachment. As mentioned in past memos our office hopes to increase participation in EFT payments to reduce costs.

Should you receive telephone calls regarding the contents of the mail out or EFT enrollment, please direct the vendor to the OSRAP Help Desk at (225) 342-1097. Early indications are that the vendors are extremely interested in the contents of the mail out. We are currently experiencing a heavy volume of phone calls from the vendors to our Help Desk. We ask for your patience and assure you that all messages will be returned in the order they are received.

Should you have any questions, please contact the OSRAP Help Desk at (225) 342-1097.
