Procedure Updates Due to Coronavirus
Accounts Payable (AP) is continuing their efforts to decrease the amount of suppliers paid via check. Employees that work with suppliers paid via paper check should follow the guidance in the Supplier Payments section on the main Finance Division Coronavirus Information page to ensure that payments can be made electronically.
AP is continuing to perform outreach to employees who have not completed the required information to receive their expense report payments electronically via direct deposit. For an employee to receive their expense report reimbursement via direct deposit, the AP Employee Expense Direct Deposit Form [.pdf] must be completed and emailed to AP at AP-Supplierfirstname.lastname@example.org. Note: Direct deposit information that was completed in Workday for an employee’s payroll direct deposit does not sync between Oracle and Workday.
Accounts Payable (AP) processes payments to vendors, faculty, staff and students in a courteous, timely and professional manner. AP provides excellent customer service and ensures compliance with the policies and procedures of the university.
Electronic payments are processed weekly for suppliers, business and travel expense reports, non-qualified scholarship and other payments per the designated day for each CMU location:
- Monday: Australia and Rwanda
- Tuesday: Qatar
- Thursday: U.S.
Please note that check payments are processed monthly.
