The General Accounting Office/AFIS Operations Group would like to inform you that the restriction of the use of vendor/customer ID MISCPAYVEND in AFIS is now in place. This is in accordance with SAAM 4553, Proper Uses of MISCPAYVEND and MISCCUSTOM, that went into effect on January 1, 2020. Link to SAAM 4553 is included below for your convenience.
If your agency sent a request to use MISCPAYVEND to [email protected] as instructed in SAAM 4553-1.1.1, your agency should already receive a response from the AFIS Operations Group. If your agency does not and needs to use MISCPAYVEND, send a request to [email protected] for consideration. The request must state the purpose for which MISCPAYVEND will be used and how Federal reporting requirements will be met.
Please contact the AFIS Operations Group at [email protected] if you have any questions.
