Logging and Processing Invoices for Payment
Accounts Payable receives vendor invoices for Online PAS Purchase Orders by US Mail, Campus mail and personal delivery. To provide visibility in the payment process, they are logged within 48 hours of receipt in AP into a UW created Document Logging module in PAS.
Barring any discrepancies, payment will be scheduled net 30 days from the invoice received date unless otherwise specified in the terms and conditions of the PO contract.
The department should notify firstname.lastname@example.org at least 2 days before the payment scheduled date if payment should be held or cancelled.
If your department needs a copy of an invoice, you can view and print the image through PDR.
Non-RIP invoices received directly from the vendor will be logged and processed in PAS, but will be pending department approval before payment can be released. These invoices will be visible in PDR on the NonRIP Invoices Pending report.
Payment will not be released on these invoices until AP receives approval from department that includes information about who received the goods or services, date received, and who is approving payment. Departments can click on the DSI hyperlink within the NonRIP Invoices Pending report in PDR to access a webform for submitting department approval. Departments can email email@example.com with information regarding their NonRIP invoices, but the preferred method of receiving approvals is through the webform in PDR.
When a NonRIP invoice will be charging your budget it will show on your report, even if the Purchase Order was placed by a different department. The approval should come from the office that placed and received the order. For example, if a Purchase Order has 8 shared budgets the invoice will show on the report for each budget, but the approval should come from the department placing the order.
