Due to COVID-19 and Governor Brown’s Executive Order, the Business Office and Purchasing are working remotely. Please direct inquiries and questions for Accounts Payable to email@example.com and for Purchasing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Operations during COVID-19 Restrictions
To meet deadlines, process invoices, reimbursements, and PO’s/BPO’s you currently have two options.
Send your Documents Electronically
This option is temporary due to COVID-19, and this method is preferred at this time. If choosing this option, the payee must include the following statement with their emailed/scanned receipts:
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions I’m scanning my original receipt/s for reimbursement to my school’s budget authority. I have written on each receipt “scanned for reimbursement”. I attest that I will not submit these originals again at a later date. Once I verify receipt of the funds I will shred the original receipts.
Purchasing will accept scanned copies of receipts with DocuSign budget approval. The budget authority should scan the requests to email@example.com. Please ensure that the packet is complete and legible. Do not overlap receipts— the full receipt/invoice must be viewable for auditing.
Please note: A live signature is required on reimbursement requests when the payee has direct deposit. However, if the payee is unable to sign the request they need to acknowledge in their email that they understand the funds will be direct deposited. Remember: Payroll and Accounts Payable direct deposits are separate systems.
Deliver Requests to the Mail Room
Mail Services is located in the UC on the lower level. There is a mail slot to the left of the main entrance to the mail room. The building is locked so you’ll need your Boxer Card to access the building. Please refrain from calling CPS as their time should be reserved for emergencies.
No Change to Deadlines
Our deadlines remain the same: Requests are due by 5 p.m. on Monday for the check run that week. We hope to keep to a Thursday check run but the run on March 26, 2020 may be delayed to Friday. Accounts Payable will not hold checks for pick up until further notice. Payments will be sent by direct deposit for those currently signed up or mailed to an off campus address. Make sure all requests have a complete address. If no address is included on the form, Accounts Payable will mail to the home address on record (sorry no UC boxes). AP will no longer be sending the blue secure bag to the Hillsboro campus.
