Frequently Asked Invoice Questions for Printing and Related Services Orders Procured Commercially through GPO.

GPO’s Payment Program (EFT)

Our goal is to pay bills within 30 days after receipt or sooner, if a prompt payment discount was offered with the bid.

We are required to pay all contractors through the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) program. Under EFT, payments are in your account on the payment date. Accounting data is furnished electronically to your bank or financial institution, which is responsible for providing you with the data you need to settle your accounts.

To receive payment through EFT, you must complete the ACH Vendor/Miscellaneous Payment Enrollment Form (SF 3881).

Step 2: Include information

Payment for Printing and Publishing Vendors

Your invoice should include the following:

  • Purchase order number
  • Jacket number
