Follow-up to Outstanding SMART checks to be reviewed

This is additional information to help you in reviewing outstanding checks.

Follow-up to the SMART Infoblast dated 5/6/2014, Outstanding SMART checks to be reviewed:

As noted in Informational Circular 14-a-005, agencies have 3 options for handling an outstanding check:

  • If it has been determined the payment is not due to the vendor, the agency is responsible for canceling the payment.

     

  • If it has been determined the payment was lost and the vendor address has been verified, the agency may request the payment be reissued.

  • If it has been determined the payment is due to the vendor and such payment remains outstanding, the check will be escheated and transferred to unclaimed property. The vendor then has the right to claim such outstanding payment from the Unclaimed Property Division of the Kansas State Treasurer.

Thank you
