Redesign of e-Invoice

Coming very soon!!  

Campus users familiar with Accounts Payable’s e-Invoice portal will notice an exciting redesign.

The new look is being launched to be consistent with the university’s web pages and branding as well as updating the portal’s security for submitting purchase order invoices.The security feature will require the PO# and its related Supplier ID#, both of which will be validated before the submission is accepted.

What is e-Invoice?

e-Invoice is a quick and convenient method to submit purchase order invoices to Accounts Payable for payment processing. Users can upload PO invoices in a dedicated portal located in the Accounts Payable section of the Finance website.

Some benefits to using e-Invoice are:

  • reduce paper usage which is better for the environment
  • invoices will be viewable via FTS on the requisition
  • efficient processing for payment by Accounts Payable
