Accounts Payable & Travel

The Accounts Payable and Travel division of the Controller’s Office is responsible for monitoring and processing all non-salary financial obligations for the University community. Our goal is to consistently process payments in a timely manner so that vendor terms are honored and cash discounts are taken.

The department’s responsibility includes:

  • Processing vendor invoices for payment of goods and services that have been requisitioned on UNCSA purchase orders.
  • Processing and auditing departmental payment requests such as Direct Pay Requests, Travel Reimbursements and Petty Cash Reimbursement Requests.
  • Liquidating encumbrances
  • Distributing expenses to the appropriate Banner Finance funds
  • Maintaining archival records of all non-salary disbursement payments

Direct deposits and check runs schedules are Wednesdays, but are subject to change due to summer hours, holidays, training. Campus will be notified of changes through a My SA announcement.
