Accounts Payable & Procurement

Accounts Payable is responsible for the payment of goods and services to vendors as well as reimbursements to individuals for costs incurred as part of University business. Our goal is to maintain controls while providing innovative approaches to streamline the payment process, especially for frequent, university-wide purchases.

The Purchasing Department is a service unit established to support the mission of the Research Foundation. It is staffed by procurement professionals who have the requisite knowledge, skills and training to assist research personnel in the purchase of required goods and services. This expertise insures that procurement decisions will be made in the best interest of the Research Foundation and in compliance with state and federal statutes as well as Research Foundation policies.
