Accounts Payable

Invoice Payment Status

Vendors providing goods and/or services to the City of Sacramento generally have their invoices processed for payment within 30 days of the invoice date. If you are a City vendor with an invoice that is outstanding more than 30 days, first contact the individual or department you provided the goods or services for to determine if they processed your invoice for payment. If this approach has been unsuccessful, please send an email to

Be sure to include your invoice with the email.

Doing Business With the City of Sacramento

The City requires a current Form W-9 and either a California Form 590, for in-state vendors and nonprofit organizations, or California Form 587 for out-of-state vendors, when establishing a new vendor account or making any kind of payment. The purpose of the forms is to ensure that the City complies with Federal and State withholding requirements. The forms also ensure that the City has the correct name of the individual or business, the correct address and the correct form of business for the vendor or payee. Click below to obtain current forms such as the W-9, 590 and 587.
