Accounting Procedures & Information
Invoices are processed for payment when received by Accounts Payable. Checks are issued according to the purchase order. The University payment terms are net 30 working days following the latest completion, acceptance or rendering of the properly authorized invoice. A current W8-BEN must be on file for the vendor to receive payment.
In order to process payment, a receiving report must be sent to Accounts Payable as soon as the order has been completely fulfilled. Receiving reports are acknowledgements that the purchased item(s) has been received in good order.
Invoices charged to chartfield strings which do not have sufficient budget (budget errors) can not be processed and will be returned to the department. It is important that the department follow up with these budget errors as soon as possible to ensure that the vendor is paid timely. The department may need to process a budget transfer. Contact your department’s budget analyst in the Budget Office 874.2509.
The department is responsible to make sure authorized signatures on all forms comply with the authorized signatures on file in the Budget Office. Incorrect signatures on forms will require us to send the forms back to the department.
