Supplier payments

Accounts Payable is responsible for making payments to suppliers and the payment of expenses to external visitors to the University.

Please note: Please ensure that you have an official University purchase order number before you provide goods or services to the University. You must quote the purchase order on the invoice in order to be paid. Invoices without valid order numbers will cause significant delays in payment or may have been from an unauthorised source (including from external to the University).
