  3. Submit your final invoice (see invoicing instructions below).

The State University of New York asks that you allow 60 days for processing, as all invoices go through the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, rather than being paid directly from our university. You will see payment issued from “NYSDTF” on your bank statement. Although a 60-day period is requested, payment is often made within 30 days.

If 60 days passes and you have not seen your payment, please reach out to and we will connect you with our Accounts Payable team to resolve the issue. 

Check status/SFS website  

Instructions are provided to all agents to set up a profile on the Statewide Financial System (SFS) Vendor Portal at the original agreement signing. The information in this portal needs to be kept accurate, to facilitate payment. Make sure to keep your profile updated with all current contact and banking information. If your company name changes, please contact  with this information prior to submitting an invoice. 

Log in to your existing SFS account here to check the status of your payment or to make any updates to your profile.
