The information being provided below is only for manual claim filing by state agencies requesting the State Controller's Office to process payments.

All state agencies should refer to the State Administrative Manual (SAM) for instructions on how to properly prepare a manual claim schedule.

For information on requirements for a claim schedule see:

All manual claims must be filed with the State Controller's Office with a "Claim Schedule Face Sheet" for STD. 218.
