Welcome to Contract & Payment Express (C&PE)
The State of Michigan is upgrading its financial and business systems to a new system, SIGMA. Conversion begins July 31, 2017 with all payments being issued through the new system beginning October 2, 2017. SIGMA will improve the way Michigan performs all financial activities, including budgeting, accounting, payments, and business and grant opportunities. SIGMA Vendor Self-Service (VSS) improves how we work with vendors, payees and grantees, replacing Contract & Payment Express (C&PE) and Buy4Michigan.
For more information on this major improvement, visit our website at Michigan.gov/SIGMAVSS.
Effective February 1, 2016, vendors and payees will be required to register and maintain their information through Contract and Payment Express. This change is necessary to improve the protection of personally identifiable and banking information. For assistance registering or accessing your information, contact the OFM Help Desk. Contact information can be found through the Payee Registration Helpline link.
You must have an email address to register on this site.

This will allow access to your account immediately. Accounts without valid e-mail addresses will need to contact the OFM Help Desk for assistance.

If electronic payments from the State of Michigan are deposited into a U.S. account and then are automatically redirected to a foreign account, the electronic transmission may fail. Please contact your financial institution to determine what options are available to ensure continued electronic transmission of your payments.
State of Michigan payees are able to direct payments to one or multiple bank accounts. The direct deposit (EFT) process is completely paperless. Please note that while enrolling or making changes to your banking information, the State will validate the account with your bank. This process can take up to 10 days. During this time, payments will be made by warrant rather than EFT.
- This site will not allow you to set up Direct Deposit (Electronic Funds Transfer) for your paychecks. You should visit the MI HR Service Center website or call 1-877-766-6447 for assistance with setting up Direct Deposit of your paychecks. Employee expense reimbursements are no longer issued through the State Vendor file. Expenses are entered in the DCDS Time & Expense application.
