What You Should Know
When you purchase goods or services from our contract suppliers through Prime Financials, payment is issued when the supplier forwards the invoice to Accounts Payable at email@example.com, and the invoice matches the referenced purchase orders. Departments also must receive orders of $2500 or more, and those receipts must match the PO as well as the invoice for payment to be issued.
In the event that a PO, receipt, and invoice do not match, a match exception is generated. Plese review the steps that you should take to resolve these match exceptions.
In addition to paying salaries and wages to employees, the University processes thousands of non-salary, non-travel, and non-purchase order requests for payments to people. These include payments to esteemed scientists who receive honoraria for visiting lectures, independent experts who work with us on special assignments, employees and students who receive cash awards and prizes, and vendors who deliver a quick lunch for a last-minute meeting.
All these requests for payment require specific procedures and forms for processing. Please see the further reading below for more information.
