About FDA

The percentage of vendor payments that are made on time

Dictionary: HHS mandates require that all approved invoices are paid within 30 days at least 98% of the time. FDA’s current on-time payment rate is 98% to 99%. In accordance with the Prompt Pay Act, FDA is required to pay interest penalties on invoices not paid timely. Therefore, the Office of Financial Operations (OFO) works to keep interest penalties to a minimum.
