Central Accounting and Vendor Management

The Central Accounting and Vendor Management Unit (CMU) provides a variety of centralized professional and technical services and assistance for State departments including: federal tax reporting, warrant and electronic funds transfer (EFT) control, disbursement and escheatment management, PERA reporting for retirees working as independent contractors, Vendor/Customer modification and maintenance, vendor intercept table management, and IRS tax levy processing. CMU is the business process owner for these unit functions in CORE. CMU also manages Vendor Self Service (VSS) certifications and updates to the Vendor/Customer tables in CORE for external State vendors. The unit recommends and implements statewide accounting policies and procedures per best business practices, rules, and standards and analyzes business issues and options as well as provides training.

Please contact state_centralapproval@state.co.us with any questions related to vendors, payments issued out of CORE, or federal tax reporting.
