Do Not Pay

Do Not Pay (DNP) operates a resource dedicated to preventing and detecting improper payments.

DNP is authorized and governed by the Payment Integrity Information Act of 2019 (PIIA), and several Office of Management and Budget (OMB) memoranda and circulars. The authorities generally belong to OMB, which delegated the operational aspects to the Department of the Treasury.

The Working System and DNP together create one element of the larger multi-agency government-wide DNP Initiative and centrally provides a variety of data matching and data analytics services to support agency programs in their efforts to prevent and detect improper payments.

DNP and the Payment Life Cycle

Our mission is to assist agencies to make informed decisions in the identification, mitigation, and elimination of improper payments.


Before you start to pay, search DNP to make sure it’s okay to pay this person or company.


Check again throughout the time this person or company is getting payments, or set up to monitor their eligibility. You can also research matches.

At Time of Payment

Any funds disbursed by the Department of the Treasury go through Payment Integration, in which the DNP Portal automatically matches all PAM files against available death data sources. Read more about what DNP searches.


Use Data Analytics to see trends, develop predictive models, and develop risk scores unique to your program.
