Why is the deadline for SMART voucher same day processing 10:00 AM if PayCycle doesn't run until 2:30 PM?
Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:50 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
In order to have enough time to send data back and forth with the federal government, a voucher must be matched, budget checked, and approved by 10:00 AM for the possibility of same day processing. If a debt is not found for that vendor in KDRS or TOP, the voucher will be released for PayCyle that same day. If a debt is found in either system, the voucher will be delayed by 2-4 business days. A voucher that becomes eligible for PayCycle after 10:00 AM will not be subject to the new offset process until the following day.
