Sept. 8, 2023 —
The Coast Guard Finance Center will be unable to release payments from Sept. 26-Oct. 14, 2023, while the financial management system is offline for the annual fiscal year closeout period.
Throughout this period, contractors should continue to comply with the invoice instructions defined in their award. Submission of duplicate invoices will result in even longer payment delays.
The Coast Guard will surge resources when the system becomes available in October to process past due invoices as quickly as possible.
The Finance Center anticipates returning to normal operations by early November.
