Processing Purchase Order Payments


When a supplier invoice is received in Accounts Payable, it is entered into the Oracle Accounts Payable application for payment according to the information on the original, approved requisition. Typically, no further action is required by the department that placed the order.

  • If the goods have been received and the quantity and price match the purchase order, Accounts Payable will approve the invoice and pay according to the supplier terms.
  • If the goods were not delivered through Central Receiving, the department must contact Receiving to advise them that the order has been received. Until the order is actually "received" in the system, it will be placed on "invoice hold".
  • All invoices for services must be "received" in the Oracle application by Central Receiving.
