Submitted on Fri, 04/24/2020 - 11:50 am

Revised from 3/16/2020

Accounts Payable and Financial Compliance introduced a paperless process while employees work remotely. This has been a very successful practice and will continue upon returning to the University.  

Disbursement Vouchers (DV) and Procurement PCard Transactional Documents (PCDO)

  • Invoices, receipts and supporting documentation for expenditures via a Disbursement Voucher (DV) or Procurement Card (PCDO) transaction must be attached to the eDoc in the Notes and Attachments tab within UAccess Financials, unless the document contains security sensitive data. 
  • Information classified as regulated data and security sensitive data by the Information Security Office includes banking information, social security numbers and full credit card numbers.
  • Documents may be mailed to Accounts Payable, 888 N. Euclid Ave. Rm. 402, Tucson AZ, 85721 or uploaded via the Accounts Payable Secure Upload.
  • Forms such as W-9, ICON or Direct Deposit forms should not be redacted due to data requirements in Accounts Payable and should be uploaded via the Accounts Payable Secure Upload.

Additional Requirements

  • Photocopies, scanned images, and pictures of legible receipts and supporting documentation are accepted
  • Promissory notes for Operational Advances or replenishments may be signed and attached to the DV. If the employee is unable to sign, the DV can still be routed for approval.
  • Upon return to the University, supporting documents already attached electronically should NOT be forwarded to Financial Services.
  • Scanned documents, whether already scanned or future originals, should be maintained in the department until the records retention requirements are met for each document type. 
  • Attached documentation must be of good quality
  • Accounts Payable or Financial Compliance will request originals when the supporting documentation is of poor quality and does not meet audit standards.

Payment Requests (PREQ)

  • Accounts Payable will continue to create PREQ documents.
  • Invoices/receipts will be attached to the Images Tab within the Payment Request for review and approval by the fiscal officer(s).
