The University of Colorado is closely monitoring the situation in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank as it affects University travel. Many airlines have already cancelled or suspended flights, and traveler advisories are changing regularly. For the most up-to-date information on worldwide travel advisories and how those impact any University business travel planning, please refer to the US Department of State Travel Advisories page.
CU travelers are also encouraged to utilize ISOS Membership Services (enter CU’s Membership No. 11BCAS000006 to log in) as an additional resource. To receive updated notifications dependent on your travel destination, download the ISOS mobile app. Note: All travel booked through Concur/CBT is automatically registered with ISOS.
Invoices for purchased items are submitted by the supplier directly to PSC Payable Services. (If the supplier sends the invoice to the ordering department, the department must forward it to Payable Services.)
The goal of Payable Services-Accounts Payable (AP) is to audit and process all invoices in a timely manner and in compliance with applicable rules and regulations. Contact PSC@cu.edu for Payables assistance.
How does Accounts Payable work?
Purchase Orders (POs) / Standing Purchase Orders (SPOs)
Invoices against Purchase Orders (POs), including Standing Purchase Orders (SPOs), are processed in the CU Marketplace and the PeopleSoft Finance System. For small-dollar (up to $10,000) orders, invoices that match are automatically paid. For large-dollar (over $10,000) orders, invoices must match and the departments must do online receiving in the Marketplace in order for the invoices to pay.
Payment Vouchers (PVs)
AP staff audits Payment Vouchers (PVs) in the Marketplace prior to processing (or returning to the department).
Payment Authorization (PA) forms & Non-Employee Reimbursement-International (NRI) forms
Departments submit PA and NRI forms to the PSC (via campus mail or by scan/email to APInvoice@cu.edu). AP staff audits and processes these payments directly in the PeopleSoft Finance System. The warrants may either be sent to the payee or to the requesting department.
As appropriate, departments can request wire transfers when payment to an external vendor must be made directly to a bank account or in a non-U.S. currency. Wire transfers involve additional bank fees that get charged to the requesting department, and often there are fees to the recipient as well.
Warrants that are not redeemed within the designated time frame become stale dated 152 days after issue date. Departments use the Warrant Adjustment (WA) form to request that these or other problematic payments be cancelled and perhaps reissued.
We are Tax Exempt
The University of Colorado, as a public institution of higher education of the State of Colorado, is exempt from all federal excise taxes and from all Colorado State and local government sales and use taxes.
