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.

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
