1. NOAA Finance Workshop Presentation Prompt Payment Performance April 29, 2008

2. Prompt Payment Act; Final Rulehppt://fms.treas.gov/prompt/regulation.html • Requires • Federal Agencies to pay interest penalties to vendors subject to the Prompt Payment Act when invoices are not paid on a timely basis • Generally an invoice payment is due 30 days after the start of the payment period • The payment period begins on the later of (1.) The date a proper invoice is received and date stamped or (2.) The seventh day after the date of delivery or performance of service is completed • If the invoice is not date stamped, the payment period begins on the date the vendor puts on the invoice

3. Prompt Payment Act; Final Rulehttp://fms.treas.gov/prompt/calculations.html • Late Interest Penalty Calculation • Prompt Pay Interest is calculated from the day after payment was due until the day payment is made. The interest rate in effect on the day after the payment due date is used to calculate the interest penalty. • The following formula can be used to determine daily interest: • P(r/360*d) • P is the amount of principal or invoice amount; • R equals the Prompt Payment interest rate; and • D equals the number of days for which interest is being calculated. • For Example: \$1,500 (.065/360*10) = \$2.71

4. OMB Performance MetricsInterest Penalties • OMB Performance Metrics – Prompt Payment Interest Penalties • Measures the amount of interest penalties paid on late invoices relative to total dollars paid in accordance with the PPA • Number of Invoices Paid on Time • Green (fully successful) >=98% • Yellow (minimally successful) >=97% -- <98% • Red (unsuccessful) <97% • Dollar Value of Interest Penalties Paid Relative to Total Dollars Paid • Green (fully successful) <=0.02% • Yellow (minimally successful) >0.02% -- <=0.03% • Red (unsuccessful) >0.03% • NOAA’s Average Performance in FY 2007 • Number of Invoices Paid on Time – 97.7% (Minimally Successful) • Interest Paid Relative to Total Dollars Paid -- .03% (minimally successful) • Late Payment Interest Penalties NOAA Paid • FY 2008 - \$207,944 • FY 2007 – \$388,240 • FY 2006 – \$295,484 • FY 2005 --\$369,934

5. Late Payment Interest Reasons • Late Reasons • Generally the delay of payments are due to : • Delay in Finance’s receipt of the invoice • Delay in Finance’s receipt of the receiving report • Delay in Finance’s receipt of the PO/Contract Mod • Delay due to invalid ACCS/Funds Availability • Specifically the delay of payments are due to: • No mail date stamp on the invoice • Goods being inspected/sitting at the receiving location • Certifier not available (on leave, training class etc.) • Not able to obtain all signatures from multiple task monitors

6. Steps To Improve or Better Manage • For interest penalty greater than \$500, Finance is identifying individuals responsible for the delay. • Notification is given on the interest penalty fee • Inquiries are made as to the specific reason for the delay. • Guidance is provided on corrective action required to prevent future late payment penalties. • Finance has put into place a new report to manage the amount of penalties paid and to highlight potential trouble spots where remedial action is required.

7. Two new reports were added to the NOAA DW in November which will provide you with information on the amount, dollar value, and reason for late interest penalties assessed during a specified period The reports are: AP501D – Prompt Payment Interest Penalty Detail Report by FMC - Provides detailed information by Line Office/FMC for invoices subject to the Prompt Payment act that have been paid late and incurred interest penalties. AP502D - Prompt Payment Interest Penalty Summary Report by FMC - Provides summary information by Line Office/FMC on the number, dollar amount and percentage of invoices paid late during a specified period New Reports to Help Manage Prompt Pay Interest Penalties
