STAR Detail Instructions


Checks to all vendors have begun to be expedited to ensure checks are mailed before shutdown occurs. CCP is manually changing the scheduled payment dates. Please note that even though the scheduled payment date has been changed, the Invoice Due date in alerts are still calculated based on the net 30 day. Please complete receiving ASAP for all receiving and change order alerts.

Example: Scheduled payment date was manually changed to 9/2/2015 but receiving alert shows invoice due of 9/16/2015.

If you receive questions from a vendor, please let them know expedited payments are only due to implementation of a new statewide system and invoices received after September 14th will return to the net 30 days.
