Payment Upate January 17th 11:10 am
Thank you to IDHS for their transparency and regular updates.
*Payments entered officially on 12/31/19 and 1/2/20 are still in need of a few adjustments. At this time, programmers are planning to run a special cycle for those payments on Monday night. If things go as they are now planning, MOST of those payments entered on 12/31/19 and 1/2/20 would be approved by DHS Monday night, and go to the Comptroller’s Office for issuing on Tuesday night, 1/21/20, or Wednesday night 1/22/20. Of course this is still assuming all the final adjustments go through smoothly.
Last night, 1/16/20, we did see many additional payments get approved/vouchered that had entry dates of: 1/7/20. 1/8/20, 1/9/20, 1/10/20, 1/13/20, and 1/14/20. HOWEVER, not all payments entered from 1/3/20 – 1/14/20 have been approved. There still some payments that needed adjustments. We are hopeful many of those payments will be approved by DHS in tonight’s cycle.
Many (NOT ALL) payments approved on 1/15/20 (that includes MANY payments entered on 1/3/20, 1/6/20, and some entered on 1/7/20) were issued by The Office of the Comptroller last night, 1/16/20. Many more payments will be issued tonight, 1/17/20.
