1: Are vendors required to accept
non-electronic methods of payment such as cash and money orders?
1: According to Paragraph 1.3.15,
vendors are required to accept payments by “credit or debit card, money order,
check, cash, or direct agency billing.” However, the DOI will accept a
proposal limiting payments to credit or debit card, money order, cashier’s

proposal that prohibits payment by cash or personal check but not a proposal

2: Is it a requirement that applicants

2: According to Paragraph 1.3.7,
