Voucher payment timeliness

Air Force Financial Services Center has experienced a significant spike in workload (non-DTS travel) between June and September due to summer PCS.  During this time, payments can take as much as 20 business days from the time a “computable” voucher is submitted for payment.

A “computable” voucher is one that includes all of the signatures and supporting documents (orders, receipts, forms, etc.) required before payment may be issued.

Tips to minimize payment delays:

1)   Maximize use of the Government Travel Card when available

2)   File vouchers immediately upon arrival to your new base

3)   Provide your supporting base Finance Office everything required to pay       you (i.e. receipts, orders, Electronic Fund Transfer forms, etc.)

Utilizing tips and suggestions may not guarantee a speedy payment of the voucher, but will greatly assist in the process. For more information, call (661) 277-4550.

 

Road delays

June 10 through Aug. 1, 2013, base motorists will encounter minor delays as work to improve roadway drainage is performed at the intersection of Rosamond Boulevard and Muroc Avenue.

During this time, Rosamond will be reduced from two-lanes each way to one-lane each way and Muroc will be closed north of Rosamond near Popson and south of Rosamond at South Seller. The entrance to the overflow parking near the Chapel will remain open. Motorists need to obey all signs and directions through the work area.

For more information, call (661) 810-6792 or (661) 212-0062.
