All vendors must provide an invoice with the corresponding Purchase Order number. Any department placing an order must adhere to the University’s procurement policies and procedures which require processing a requisition through Purchasing to receive a Purchase Order number prior to placing the order.
All invoices are to be sent directly to the Accounts Payable Office, not to the department making the purchase. If a vendor sends an invoice to a department, the department must forward this document to Accounts Payable immediately. Accounts Payable will only process original invoices (no faxes or photocopies).
All payments for goods and services must be handled according to University Policies and Procedures. Invoices for goods and services not obtained in accordance with these rules will not be processed. University employees who make an unauthorized purchase may be held personally liable for any charges incurred.
