SECTION 109-A
Alternative proofs authorized for audit by the comptroller
State Finance (STF) CHAPTER 56, ARTICLE 7
§ 109-a. Alternative proofs authorized for audit by the comptroller.
1. Notwithstanding sections one hundred nine and one hundred ten of this
article, the comptroller may, by regulation, provide for a system
whereby state agencies, vendors and providers of services submit proofs
required for payment upon audit without the submission of vouchers or
invoices. Such proofs may be in the form of paperless vouchers,
electronic vouchers or in any other media form which the comptroller
reasonably determines offers the same degree of accountability and
control now provided by the provisions of sections one hundred nine and
one hundred ten of this article.

2. Prior to implementing any alternative method of proof for payment
upon audit described in subdivision one of this section, the comptroller
shall promulgate regulations in accordance with the state administrative
procedure act. In addition to those persons required to receive notice
pursuant to subdivision six-a of section two hundred two of the state
administrative procedure act, such notice and any amendments thereto
shall be provided to the chairman of the senate finance committee and
the chairman of the assembly ways and means committee.

3. The proofs described in this section shall constitute written
instruments, computer data or statements within the meaning of articles
one hundred fifty-six, one hundred seventy, one hundred seventy-five and
one hundred seventy-six of the penal law.
