SUNY Downstate Medical Center
Accounts Payable; MailStop 54
450 Clarkson Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11203-2098
A Valid Invoice MUST INCLUDE:
A valid SUNY-DMC Issued Purchase Order or Contract Number with its available funding, and

DMC Staff: End User Department Staff Payment Authorization Requirements
How the End User Department can help expedite vendor invoice payments:
1. Make sure the DMC Purchase Order or Contract has been approved prior to the vendor shipment.
2. If the vendor has fully complied with all DMC Central Receiving Incoming Shipment Requirements (valid PO or Contract number on shipping label, detail packing slip on exterior of box), the Central Receiving unit will be able to process a Central Receiving electronic receipt for the specific goods received. When shipment is recived, the end user department recipient will sign the Central Receiving,. Receving form, (Web Receive or Lawson.) End user must ensure that a valid purchase order or contract with adequate funding is available for the approved invoice. This allows Accounts Payable to timely process the vendor's invoice when it is received.
Note: If there is any discrepancy in the receipt, be sure to report the discrepancy
to Central Receiving within 48 hours.
3. If the vendor has NOT fully complied, a manual Central Receiving form will be used to process the internal delivery to you. In these cases, the end user department head MUST send payment authorization (a signed 'ok to pay' copy of the purchase order) to Accounts Payable. If the departments fails to do this, it will delay the processing of the vendor's invoice; Accounts Payable will need to send to your department for signature to authorize the payment.
4. For invoices with any 'service component' including vendor direct delivery to the internal destination for installation, as well as all service invoices where no goods or merchandise is received through Central Receiving, the end user department must send payment authorization (signed copy of PO indicating 'ok to pay') to Accounts Payable. Doing so will avoid the additional delay of sending the vendor invoice to the department for such payment authorization signature.
