Electronic Payment Requirement
State law requires that funds disbursed from the State Treasury be sent electronically. State agencies are able to request an exemption from this requirement with cause. The Electronic Payment Exemption Request electronic document linked below should be used by state agencies to seek an exemption for cause from this requirement. Only requests submitted via this document will be considered.
State agencies must complete and submit the Request electronically via email to Electronic.Payment.Exemption@treasurer.ok.gov. Each Request will be evaluated based on the information provided. Each agency will receive a confirmation of the receipt of their Request along with a notification of whether the exemption(s) sought has been approved. All exemptions will expire on June 30, 2014. Agencies should submit their Request(s) by April 30, 2013, to ensure the exemption(s) can be processed before July 1. You may also submit questions about the Request to Electronic.Payment.Exemption@treasurer.ok.gov.
The State Treasurer has statewide contracts available to state agencies for sending electronic payments via ach or via a debit card. If you are interested, please contact Diedra O’Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org or 522-4256, or Carole Bailey at email@example.com or 522-4216.
