Financial Policy Changes: Access the memo from Dave Hale and Shannon Sinclair regarding three new financial policies, effective July 1, 2018. 

Vendor Payments: Due to the nationwide increase in phishing scams and fraudulent activity, the Accounts Payable and Procurement offices will be conducting more stringent verification of vendors, prior to setting them up in the Banner system.  The additional due diligence may cause a delay in vendor payments.  To assist our vendors in getting paid as quickly as possible, please ensure invoices are forwarded to Accounts Payable as soon as possible upon receipt. We appreciate your understanding as we strive to protect the University from fraud.
