Accounts Payable 

Accounts Payable

Office of Financial Services

The accounts payable (AP) function at UT Tyler is decentralized. University departments originate electronic payment documents based on supporting purchase orders, receiving reports and invoices received.

Upon departmental approval, the electronic documents automatically route to Central AP in Financial Services, where they are compared to attached supporting documentation and reviewed for appropriate procedure, expenditure account codes and payment terms/dates for example.

Documents with discrepancies are returned to the department creator for correction. Upon Central AP's final approval of the document, a payment date is automatically scheduled in UT Share/PeopleSoft®.

For vendors paid by check, checks are printed in the Student Business Services Cashiers' Office approximately at noon Monday-Friday, based on the voucher scheduled payment dates. Processing Stop Payments or Voiding and/or reissuing vendor checks is handled by AP in Financial Services.
