Electronic Payment Requirement
State law requires that funds disbursed from the State Treasury be sent electronically. State agencies are able to request an exemption from this requirement with cause. The Electronic Payment Exemption Request document linked on this page should be used by state agencies to seek an exemption for cause from this requirement. Only requests submitted via this document will be considered.
State agencies must complete and submit the Request electronically. Each Request will be evaluated based on the information provided. Each agency will receive a confirmation of the receipt of their Request followed by a notification of whether the exemption(s) sought has been approved. All exemptions requested and approved for FY 2024 will expire on June 30, 2024. Agencies should submit their Request(s) by May 19, 2023 to ensure the exemption(s) can be processed before July 1. See Frequently Asked Questions. You may also submit questions about the Request or how your agency can accept or send electronic payments.
The State Treasurer has statewide contracts available to state agencies for sending electronic payments via ACH or via a debit card. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact Deidra Salim or 405-522-6860.
House Bill 1086 further requires the State Treasurer post a report on the number of exempted payments and a list of causes.
