The Pre-Disbursement Processor (or PDP) receives data from systems that need to make disbursements and outputs a data file that can be sent to a check writer or formatted and sent to a bank for automated clearing house (ACH) direct deposits. It can also generate ledger entries when appropriate, such as relieving liabilities when making a disbursement against a KFS Payment Request document.
Files for processing may be created from KFS e-docs (such as the Disbursement Voucher or the Payment Request document) or may be manually uploaded. The systems that provide these files are referred to as PDP 'customers'. Depending on the specifications of these customers, checks and ACH deposits may be formatted in various ways before being outputted.
