How long will it take for accounts payable to process my payment?
Accounts Payable strives to process payments within fifteen working days of receiving correct and complete payment requests/invoices, for existing vendors.
Payment processing times are affected by higher volume time periods (e.g., ends of semesters and fiscal year end) as well as delays due to incomplete or incorrect requests. Departments are responsible for planning ahead, ensuring that their vendors have completed the PaymentWorks onboarding process, and submitting payment requests/invoices in a manner that allows for sufficient processing time.
How can I tell whether or not my payment has been issued?
As soon as a payment has been keyed in Banner, it will appear on screen FAIVNDH as well as FGITRND.

All vendors, including independent contractors, must onboard via the university's secure vendor portal, PaymentWorks. More information about PaymentWorks, including instructional guides, can be found on the PaymentWorks Vendor Management page.
NOTE: If you receive an independent contractor denial email from Human Resources, you must submit an invoice in lieu of a contract and the payment request must be approved by your executive officer or their delegated representative.
