The Do Not Pay (DNP) Business Center is a multi-functional analytics tool and one-stop data shop.

DNP allows agencies to check various data sources for pre-award, pre-payment eligibility verification, at the time of payment and any time in the payment lifecycle. It allows them to verify eligibility of a vendor, grantee, loan recipient, or beneficiary. This will help prevent, reduce, and stop improper payments, as well as prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.

  • DNP offers a centralized system (the DNP portal) that agencies can use at no cost to isolate and identify the potential for improper payments.
  • DNP will benefit the federal agency that enters into a financial transaction with a person or entity.
  • DNP is NOT a list of entities or people that should not be paid.
  • DNP provides many data sources - in one place - that agencies can use to verify eligibility.
  • DNP is committed to providing:
    • quality data
    • more data sources
    • continuous system development
    • cutting edge data analytics
    • customized agency outreach

Our Mission is to:

  • Protect the integrity of the government’s payment process by assisting agencies in mitigating and eliminating improper payments in a cost-effective manner while safeguarding the privacy of individuals.
