Notice to all Vendors
As of Monday, May 9, 2016, the District of Maryland Federal Court agencies (U.S. District Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, U.S. Probation & Pretrial Services Office, and Federal Public Defender’s Office) transitioned to the new financial system for the U.S. Courts called the Judiciary Integrated Financial Management System or JIFMS. JIFMS integrates with existing United States Government financial systems including the System for Award Management (SAM) and the Invoice Processing Platform (IPP).
Registering with these new systems will provide benefits to you by expediting the processing of your invoices and payments. All payments after May 9, 2016 will be disbursed by the United States Treasury.
After registering in SAM, your payments can be made via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) using bank routing and account numbers registered in SAM and you will no longer be issued payment via United States Treasury check. Registering in SAM allows you to manage your name, address, contact and banking information and will ensure you receive payments quickly and accurately from the United States Judiciary.
Registering with IPP will allow you to check the status of your United States Treasury payments and receive email notification of payments and remittance information. IPP provides a number of other benefits to federal judiciary vendors as well, including:
Greater visibility into payment transaction data and documents
Self-service features to quickly answer your payment-related questions
Ability to better manage cash flow projections
Please note that there is no fee associated with either SAM or IPP registration. Any request for payment for registration should be treated as fraudulent.
