Using iSupplier in the Payment Process

Vendors seeking to sell goods and/or provide services to NYCHA must register on iSupplier.

iSupplier is a convenient vendor self-service option that allows vendors to track payments and check on the status of submitted invoice(s) online. You can also sign-up to receive your payments via direct deposit in iSupplier.

Electronic Invoicing

NYCHA is now utilizing an electronic Procure- to-Pay invoicing network that electronically transmits invoices directly to the Accounts Payable team. Registration is free and does not require any changes to your invoice format or technical enhancements to your Accounts Receivable system. Invoices are sent directly from your existing billing system for guaranteed, secure delivery. This provides for faster processing of submitted invoices and more timely payment.

NYCHA has partnered with Transcepta to enable electronic processing of your invoices. Transcepta will be the firm that will contact you to provide specifics on how to get connected for the electronic invoice submission (which is free). Or you can contact Accounts Payable to schedule registration.
