Direct Deposit for Vendors

Would you like to receive your money faster and more efficiently?

Texas State's General Accounting Office is pleased to offer electronic ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments to our vendors.  ACH payments (direct deposit) provide you with the following advantages:

  • Accelerated funds availability. Use of the funds one business day AFTER the transfer has taken place
  • Reduced operating costs through the elimination of paper check handling and simplification of the bank reconciliation process
  • Better cash management forecasting
  • Certainty of delivery (no more lost or stolen checks)
  • Allow the vendor to receive an e-mail showing the invoices being paid by the transfer

The National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) regulates the ACH network, a nationwide payment and collection system.  Instead of using paper to carry necessary transaction information, the ACH network processes, delivers and settles electronic credits and debits among financial institutions.  

How you enroll:

   1. Complete all the information on the Vendor Direct Deposit Authorization Form, print and sign. Note that you may fill out with Adobe Acrobat Reader before printing
   2. Forward the completed and signed form by email to or fax your completed form to (512) 245-2393
  3.The information will be verified by the Procurement and Strategic Sourcing and setup in the Texas State financial system
