To ensure that payments are generated in a timely manner, it is crucial that departments forward invoices immediately to Accounts Payable. A “timely manner” means within 30 days or less. Timely payments will reduce vendor phone calls and email notifications, so avoid delaying sending receiving documents and invoices to Accounts Payable. This is especially important as December and the holiday break approaches.
Once received in Accounts Payable, invoices are processed within five days. If an invoice needs to be processed quicker, please indicate so on the invoice.
