Electronic Vendor Payments
Legislation requires Federal agencies
to pay recipients by electronic funds transfer. Therefore, UNICOR,
Federal Prison Industries, Inc. changed the way it pays vendors.
Purchase orders or contracts cannot be awarded
to your company unless we can pay through the Automated Clearing
House (ACH) network banking system. Using this system, your company
will have its payments directly deposited into its checking or
savings account on the payment due date instead of receiving checks.
Receiving your payments electronically offers an immediate cash-flow
benefit. Your company will have prompt availability of funds on
the payment due date. There is no waiting for checks to arrive,
or deposit delays; and the chance for lost, stolen, or misplaced
checks is eliminated.
To assist your company in identifying its Federal payments, we
will include addendum information with each payment sent to your
bank. This addendum information will contain your invoice number.
You and your financial institution should agree on how and
when the addendum information will be provided to your company.
We will use the ACH payment format to transmit your payments
and addenda records to your financial institution.
We trust your company will find this a prompt, effective, and
reliable method for receiving payments; and we look forward to
your participation in this program.
