    • CBIs for non-STC vendors are generated in the vendor's VIP account on the 2nd of each month following the month a vendor receives payment for the goods and services they provided.

    • CBIs for STC vendors are generated in the vendor's VIP account on the 2nd of the month during the contract period. STC vendors must then submit a self-report every month for fee eligible payments (a $0 report should be submitted if there were no payment received for the previous month).
