Please be advised that the Vendor Payment Program is temporarily not available until a FY16 Budget is enacted. We will update this website as soon as the Program is fully operating. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Program, please feel free to contact John Starr at 312-814-1227. Thank you.
Due to a delayed payment cycle, the State of Illinois has created the Vendor Payment Program (VPP). It is a voluntary program designed to expedite the time frame of payments to State vendors and service providers. Participation is simple, secure, and vendors receive 100% value of their receivables free of cost.
Vendors must have a receivable that is:
- Eligible to accrue Prompt Payment Penalty interest under the State of Illinois' Prompt Payment Act
- At least 90 days past due
- Free of any liens or encumbrances
Please Note: Medical Assistance receivables are NOT eligible for the Vendor Payment Program.
