Interfund is a means by which one state agency may pay another state agency without physically sending cash or check for payment. Each Interfund is considered an independent arms length stand-alone transaction. Interfund process involves two components: Payable Interfund and a Deposit Interfund to complete one transaction. Each Interfund is assigned a unique ID number. These transactions are processed through the State of Kansas system called Statewide Management, Accounting, Reporting Tool (SMART). When receiving payment by Interfund, an Interfund Deposit Form must be completed to facilitate the posting of the transaction. A separate deposit must be made for each Interfund payment received.
