Invoice Processing Platform (IPP)


IPP is a secure online platform outside federal agencies' core financial systems that centralizes all invoice transaction data and documents in one place.

IPP more efficiently manages government invoicing from purchase order (PO) through payment notification.

IPP offers modules federal agencies can adopt together, alone or in phases, to achieve more effective invoice processing.

  • Electronic Purchase Orders: Agencies can upload purchase orders (PO) from their business systems, notify vendors when they post a new PO and give vendors online access to POs, which results in greater visibility into all transaction data and documents associated with a PO.
  • Electronic Invoices: IPP gives vendors multiple ways to submit invoices, such as by pre-populating invoices with data from POs within the system, creating invoices online without a PO or using electronic file submission.
  • Automated Workflow: PP automates and supports a sophisticated invoice approval process by offering multiple approval steps and options to delegate, reassign or escalate an invoice if it is not processed promptly.
  • Payment Notification Service: Vendors can check payment status online, or choose to receive e-mails with a simple notification of payment or detailed remittance information.

    This service reduces payment status inquiries and enables vendors to more easily manage their receivables and match payments to specific invoices.
  • IPP is compliant with the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16), Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization (formerly, SAS 70).
