How to Get Paid
Getting Paid by the City is Easy!
Getting Paid by the City:
If you have a purchase order from the City. the City has a prompt payment policy that requires City Departments to pay approved invoices within thirty (30) calendar days from receipt. Click here if you have questions about an invoice submitted to a City Department.
Electronic Payment Process:
To expedite payments, the City requires electronic payments to its vendors, contractors, and suppliers (i.e., "Automated Clearing House" or ACH electronic payments). The electronic remittances provide the same information currently printed on payable checks.
The City uses Paymode-X, an independent service through Bank of America Merrill Lynch to process ACH "electronic" payments. Vendors do not have to be a customer of Bank of America Merrill Lynch to receive electronic payments from the City.
Enrollment is quick and painless. You will be notified by email when you are ready to receive electronic payments from the City. This normally takes 2-3 weeks from the time you enroll.
