Review: Once received in the Accounts Payable Office, each document is reviewed by an Accounts Payable Associate to assure that the coding block is properly completed, the appropriate signatures are in place, and any supporting documentation is attached.
Processed: Invoices are sorted, reviewed, and assigned to an associate who enters the information provided on the coding block of each invoice into the university's financials system. The invoices are charged to the department or grant indicated on the coding block except for Purchase Order Commodity invoices that are charged to the department or grant designated on the purchase order.
The system also generates a special file of payment data that is electronically transmitted to the General Accounting Office in Annapolis. The original of each invoice and all documentation is forwarded to GAD following the electronic file submission. A copy of each document is maintained on file in the university's Imaging System.
Payment: Once received, the Annapolis General Accounting Office audits each invoice and reviews supporting documentation. Payment data is then transmitted to the State's Treasurer's Office where payment is generated to the vendor.
Reporting: Reports are available to every department on campus through the nVision Reporting System of all activity that posted to their department budget code during the prior month. For information on reading these reports,
