Payment for NUFinancials Purchase Orders

Overview

Overview
A purchase transaction is complete only after the goods or services have been received and the supplier has been paid.  By issuing a purchase order through NUFinancials in advance of the purchase, funds are properly encumbered and set aside to pay these obligations.  

Vendors are instructed to send invoices directly to Accounts Payable for proper processing.  NU’s preferred method for receiving invoices is mail.  Accounts Payable creates a voucher in NUFinancials.  Then, when the two-way match for catalog items or three-way match for non-catalog items is complete, the payment is made.   Payments are ordinarily made to vendors by check.
