Payment Processing

The University’s Payment Processing Department operates under the Associate Vice Chancellor for Financial Operations.  Our mission is to:

  • pay suppliers accurately and within agreed upon terms;
  • ensure compliance with federal, state and local laws;
  • implement a system of sound internal controls, and monitor compliance;
  • provide excellent customer service to the University community.

Payment Processing is responsible for all payments to suppliers for goods and services and all reimbursement requests. The department also administers the University's purchasing card program, maintains the vendor master file and issues IRS 1099 tax forms.

The Payment Processing Department is comprised of three areas, Compliance, Processing and Customer Service.  Compliance analyzes payment requests for completeness, accuracy, and adherence to University policies.  Processing processes all payment requests.  Customer Service responds to supplier and University faculty, staff and student inquiries and assists with interpretation and application of University policies and procedures.
