The state of Maryland requires all contractors to be registered to receive state payments by electronic funds transfer (EFT) before any contract exceeding $200,000 is approved by the Maryland Board of Public Works. Additionally, all vendors are encouraged to register to be paid electronically. The State has the ability to process vendor payments electronically using the CCD and CCD+ and CTX payment formats.
The CCD+ payment format will contain summarized information and will not provide details concerning each invoice amount included in the check total. However, vendors may obtain the detailed information on an electronic payment via the One Stop Vendor Payment Inquiry System. The CTX payment format will contain the total payment amount and details concerning each invoice amount included in the check total.
Vendors must contact their bank in order to receive the CTX format, and the depositing bank may charge a fee for this format. Vendors need to discuss potential charges with their bank. If you want to receive all payments from the State using the Electronic Funds Transfer program, submit Form X-10 to EFT Registration, General Accounting Division, P.O. Box 746, Annapolis, MD 21404-0746. If you are unable to download Form X-10, you can also contact GAD to obtain the form. Completing Form X-10 is all you need to do to get started.
