While DGS will continue to accept paper copy invoices, our vendors are encouraged to submit invoices electronically in PDF format to the email address listed below. Please only submit vendor invoices once as multiple submittals of the same invoice will cause payment delays.

Invoice Format

Paper invoices must comply with legal and quality requirements to guarantee that they meet the criteria for payment. All paper-based invoices are scanned and processed as an electronic image. Paper quality is a very important factor that affects the scanning process. If an invoice is received with poor paper quality, it impacts the success of the scanning process, which can then affect timely payment. Bright colored backgrounds or fonts, unclear information or even handwritten numbers or dates on invoices are elements that can diminish scan quality. The preferred format for the scanning process is a black and white computer generated invoice.

  • Splitting invoices to avoid the state’s cost limit and approval process is prohibited. Doing so may be grounds for disciplinary action by the employing agency and jeopardize doing future business with the vendor.
