Campus Sidewalk Repairs Continue

Portions of sidewalk in several locations around campus are being removed and replaced to minimize potential safety hazards. Please be cautious traveling across campus; there'll be many sections of sidewalk at various stages of repair. The contractor started on the north side of campus and will be working as quickly as possible so the impact on any one location should be limited to only a few days.

Allow Extra Time for Accounts Payable Processing as End of Fiscal Year Nears

As the end of the fiscal year approaches, the volume of payments and reimbursements increases and there may be cases when payments will take a few extra days for processing either because of additional monitoring for year-end expenses or due to an increased volume of transactions.

To help avoid unnecessary delays, please review your payment requests and reimbursements, making sure all documentation, signatures and special approvals are attached before routing/sending to Accounts Payable.

Payments made by check request, purchase order or travel reimbursement for goods, services or travel received or completed by June 30 are due in Accounts Payable by noon on Friday, July 5.

Please be sure that items, services or travel to be paid have been received or completed on or before June 30 when submitting any payment requests for fiscal year 2012-13.

Since DPO's are no longer used, please use the rubber stamp "received by" in the description part of the check request or PO invoice when you are submitting payments through Xtender.
