Controller's Office > Departments > Payment Services > Accounts Payable


The Accounts Payable section is responsible for providing payment services for goods and services to vendors, which have been rendered on behalf of the University. This process includes working with other University departments in order to ensure timely and accurate payments are made in compliance with established University policies and procedures. In addition, disbursements must meet appropriate controls such that the appropriate payments are made following the rules and regulations of governmental agencies federal, state, and local.
