Beginning Saturday, October 1, the District of Columbia will launch a new system — the District Integrated Financial System (DIFS) — to streamline financial business for suppliers. There will be a few process changes involved with the launch of the new system, such as completing Automated Clearing House (ACH) and non-purchase order registration for new suppliers. These process changes will now be handled by the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO). The Office of Contracting and Procurement (OCP) will no longer be the entry point for ACH enrollment or updates, and will no longer register non-purchase order suppliers.
Starting on Saturday, October 1, you will be able to perform the following actions in DIFS:
- New Suppliers:
- Register as a new supplier (non-purchase order)
- Enroll in the Automated Clearing House program.
- Existing Suppliers:
- Enroll in the Automated Clearing House program; your bank account information will be captured for direct deposits
- Update existing information such as address, contact information, bank details, etc.
You can find a User Guide to help you perform the above actions at https://cfo.dc.gov/supplier_portal.
If you have questions conducting any of these actions, please call us at 202-442-6870 or email us at [email protected].
