Payment Registration for Program Participants
Individuals who participate in programs with payment reimbursements must be registered in the State’s accounting system in order to receive payments.
These programs may include, but are not limited to:
- Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
- Competitive Skills Scholarship (CSSP)
- National Emergency Grant (NEG)
- Trade Adjustment Assistance
Each individual that receives any type of payment from the State of Maine is referred to as a "vendor," whether they are a business who provides a service or an individual who is submitting a reimbursement claim.
The State of Maine Division of Purchases utilizes a Vendor Self Service portal which allows vendors (or individuals) to register and update their own accounts in the system. Since this system has many features that are geared toward businesses, the Bureau of Employment Services has developed an instruction document to assist individual program participants in navigating the system.
