Western and other Federal agencies pay vendors through electronic funds transfer. You must be registered in SAM to be awarded a Federal contract. Electronic payment is made as specified in your SAM registration.
If your business is not set up to receive electronic payments, download the ACH enrollment form.
Remittance information is sent with electronic vendor payments to the vendor's financial institution through the Automated Clearing House system. The financial institution passes the remittance information to the vendor under a pre-existing agreement with the vendor.
If you do not wish to receive remittance information through the ACH system, the Federal Management Service provides Payment Advice Internet Delivery system as an alternative. PAID is a secure system that makes remittance information available to vendors through the Internet at no cost. Register on-line, and all subsequent payment information will be available on-line or by e-mail.
If the Department of Energy paid you more than $600 for services during the calendar year, the Internal Revenue Service requires you to report your earnings on Form 1099 (pdf 63 kb).
Please call Western’s Accounts Payable staff at 720-962-7456 for more information.
