A miscellaneous claim is a request for a payment owed to a contractor in which appropriations have lapsed. Contractors are allowed to make a request for a miscellaneous claim through the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (Comptroller).
Common reasons why a miscellaneous claim may be filed with the Comptroller's office are:
- A contractor delivered services and has billed after appropriations have expired;
- A contractor requests that an expired warrant be reissued;
- DFPS determines that a payment is owed to a contractor after conducting an audit of its programs; or
- Other claim justified by state contract or state law.
