​​​​​​​​​​About Accounts Payable

The Government Accounting Branch AP Operations team is responsible for processing various types of miscellaneous obligations.  Types of miscellaneous obligations include Inter-Personnel Agreements (IPA), Travel relocations and freight, Settlement Agreements, Torte Claims as well as, SF-1034 vouchers for Gift Fund Reimbursements, Professional Liability Insurance Reimbursement, Internet and Medical License Reimbursements.  Once the obligations are completed they are hand delivered to the OFM Commercial Accounts Branch for payment processing.

The AP Operations team is also responsible for processing Inter-Governmental Payment and Collections (IPACs).  Federal Trading Partners bill the NIH through IPAC which results in electronic funds transfer though Treasury.  NIH requires that all IPAC transactions include valid NIH Treasury Account Symbols (TAS). 

Other operational functions that are processed on the AP Operations team include submitting Gift Fund/CRADA checks to the NIH Cashier for deposit, approving Project/CAN requests submitted by the ICs, establishing Segment 14 values in NBS per IC requests, establishing Project Cost Center (PCC) codes in NBS as well as issuance of W2s & 1099-MISC tax forms for Relocation and Loan Repayment tax liability payments.
