Audit Confirmation Procedures

The Payment Management System (PMS) allows grant recipients to provide auditors with confirmation of grant payments during on-site audits.

To obtain grant payment confirmation, recipients can:

  1. Log into PMS
  2. Submit a Payment Data query by entering the account number or sub-account number

A history of all payment related transactions will be displayed in chronological order beginning with the most recent activity. The list of the transactions may include payments of a specific sub-account, payments within specific start and end dates, or payments with a specific confirmation number.

NOTE: For assistance with the PMS Payment Data inquiry, contact the Accounting and Reports Branch at

Please include the contact information of the individual receiving the payment data (name, phone number, fax number and email address).

Programmatic or specific grant award inquiries are handled by the recipient’s federal awarding agency.
