Electronic Value Transfer Services
State agencies and non-state agencies can accept online credit card payments through OGS Procurement Services' Electronic Value Transfer (EVT) Program. With this program, you can collect fines, fees, rates, charges, taxes, interest, and penalties online.
Examples of existing EVT programs are below.
Using EVT Contracts
You must complete an application for each payment program to use the EVT contracts, regardless of the vendor you want to use. Each application is reviewed by OGS Procurement Services and is sent to the Division of the Budget for approval. Once approved, you can choose one or both contracts for processing your online credit card transactions: Key Merchant Services and American Express.
After your EVT program is running, you must comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) regulations because the federal government considers you a merchant who processes credit cards. Take the time to understand the requirements and complete the PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire.
