Use of Quick Pay Vouchers by Selected Downstate Facilities

Quick pay vouchers are vouchers that are submitted electronically to the State Comptroller's Office for payment. Such vouchers may not exceed a certain dollar amount. We examined the use of quick pay vouchers by three downstate psychiatric centers and found that the vouchers were generally processed in compliance with relevant purchasing guidelines. However, certain improvements were needed to ensure full compliance and provide stronger assurance that the goods and services paid for were actually received. 94-S-57
