What is the procedure for submitting an invoice for payment that is in the amount of $25,000.00 or greater?
When submitting an invoice that is $25,000.00 or greater, the invoice must be the original invoice bearing an appropriate original authorizing signature, copies of invoices will not be accepted or processed for payment. If you are unsure of who is authorized to approve an invoice for payment please contact the Accounts Payable Office (as it could be different from an approver of a purchase requisition). If the invoice is being charged to a grant then the Office of Sponsored Projects must also approve the invoice before payment can be made. All checks in the amounts of $25,000.00 or greater must be manually signed by two authorized check signors after the check is printed.
When should I request that a stop payment be placed on a check?
If a company or individual has not received their check within 10 business days of the check being mailed, please contact Accounts Payable to begin the process of placing a stop payment on that check.

How do I order a check in foreign currency?
Submit the Invoice, Request For Payments, or Miscellaneous Income Payment Voucher as you normally would but clearly indicate that you are requesting a foreign currency check be issued; You will need to specify the foreign currency the payment should be made in and the amount to be paid in that currency. Since the College uses a 3rd party vendor for its foreign currency checks, please keep in mind when you review your account transactions that the payment will show up with a vendor name of “Associated Foreign Exchange” rather than the name of the vendor that you are paying.
