Payment Terms

The U.S. Government does not make advance payments – payment is made by Electronic Funds Transfer (ETF) after receipt and acceptance of ordered goods/services and receipt of a proper invoice.

Prior to performing any services or delivering any products, please ensure that you have received an awarded procurement document (e.g. Purchase Order, Delivery/Task Order, etc.) duly signed by the Embassy General Services Office (GSO) Contracting Officer. The ordering document number would read something like SAU90015M00xx.

The Embassy cannot pay for goods and services unless you have proof that it was ordered. Once you have received this document, and only then, your company is authorized to perform the services or deliver your product.
