PSC's payment management area serves as a fiscal intermediary between federal awarding agencies and award recipients. As part of its services, Payment Management provides same day and next day automated payments; monitors the status of award funds; provides related debt collection services and performs Federal Domestic Assistance reporting to the Department of Commerce. In addition, the PSC's payment management services are designated by OMB as the federal government's central collection point for interest earned on advances of federal grant and grant-type funds.

Payment Management System

Payment Management operates and maintains the Payment Management System (PMS), one of only two CFO Council approved civilian grant payment systems. The PMS provides disbursement, grant monitoring, reporting, and cash management services to both awarding agencies and grant recipients. The PMS online inquiry capabilities provide users with another tool to manage their awards more effectively. The PMS can be accessed through the PMS home page at
