For most U.S. Coast Guard commercial contracts beginning on October 1, 2021, suppliers must submit invoices through the Invoice Processing Platform (IPP), a secure web-based, payment information system provided by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Management Service. The service is available free of charge to all Federal agencies and their suppliers.
Please refer to the terms of your contract for invoicing instructions specific to your contract.
Once a new contract is established, suppliers should receive IPP enrollment information by email. If you are not already enrolled in IPP, please contact your Contracting Officer or Contracting Officer’s Representative to let them know you need to receive enrollment information to use IPP. You may also contact the FINCEN Vendor Support Team at FIN-SMB-FSMS-VendorSupport@uscg.mil.
You will not be able to “sign up” for IPP. You must have a current contract and be enrolled by working through your FINCEN points of contact.
Note for U.S. Coast Guard Yard suppliers: As of December 20, 2021, the USCG Yard Team FIN-SMB-YardTeam@uscg.mil email address was phased out and no longer capable of accepting emailed invoices. Most commercial invoices for the U. S. Coast Guard Baltimore Yard must be submitted through the Department of Treasury’s Invoice Processing Platform (IPP) https://www.ipp.gov. This applies to Yard contracts established prior to October 1, 2021, as well
