Vendor Payment Program 

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.
