Give Constituents the Freedom to Pay How They Want

With our suite of payment solutions and extensive government experience, we enable your agency to modernize payments operations and meet your constituents’ needs. We work with thousands of government agencies across the United States as their strategic payments partner. Our platform is Level 1 PCI-compliant, with tokenization, contactless and Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) services to keep sensitive card data safe.

Constituents and taxpayers no longer want to make payments with traditional cash or paper checks. With CSG Forte, accept digital and contactless payments through the latest technology, including:

  • ACH
  • Debit card
  • Credit card
  • Digital wallet

Secure Government Payment Solutions

Government organizations handle high volumes of sensitive information when managing payments. Given the sensitivity of this information, it’s essential to keep it secure. Using secure payment processing is also key for keeping your organization compliant with various standards.

PCI Compliant

Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance involves various processes for protecting cardholder data. While you can complete PCI compliance assessments independently or through third parties, CSG Forte offers a PCI compliance program that you can add to your monthly platform subscription.

We’ve partnered with a primary and secondary vendor that offers user-friendly and low-cost tools for validating compliance. This added layer of support allows your government organization to streamline the compliance process and confirm the protection of constituents’ data.

PCI Validated Encryption

Our payments platform has integrated data encryption that’s compliant with PCI standards. This encryption process disguises card data during transmission to make it appear valueless if intercepted.

With encryption, you can streamline the PCI compliance validation process even further, and you can assure constituents that their data is safe during electronic payments.


Tokenization is another way we keep sensitive data safe. Replace ACH, card and other sensitive data with a randomly generated token that carries no intrinsic value. This process reduces the risks of intercepted transfers, just like encryption.

We have had a great experience with Forte since day 1. The fees for the tax payer are less than the previous company we used. The daily reports give so much information and I am able to pull all information up from each transaction if need be.
