Disbursements requests are processed in accordance with University purchasing procedures. Supporting documentation must be attached to the DEPARTMENT PURCHASE ORDER (DPO). If specific instructions and/or enclosures are to be considered, these must be noted clearly on the body of the DPO. For instructions on completing the DPO.
Accounts Payable issues checks twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. From the time the fully approved DPO is received by the Business Office, there is normally a two-day processing period for the issuance of a check. That is, requests received by the Business Office on Monday normally are ready late Wednesday afternoon. To meet a specific deadline of payment, the preparer should allow sufficient time for the DPO approval process.
Questions concerning check disbursements should be directed to Accounts Payable, ext. 7340.
