The definition of a "business purpose" is the way in which a particular good or service supports the University's mission of education, research, and public service. It is an essential component of expenditure documentation. When using University funds or requesting a reimbursement from University funds, documentation of a clear business purpose is required so that an approver, reviewer and /or auditor, may reasonably conclude and agree that the expenditure is an appropriate business expense.
Accounts Payable requires the following documentation in order to process payments:
- Original vendor invoices are required. Faxes and other copies of invoices are not accepted.
- A valid Purchase Order number must appear on the invoice.
- Purchase Orders must be received in the Financial System before Accounts Payable can release payment.
- First time payments to vendors should include a completed Vendor Application.
We process checks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
