Accounts Payable is responsible for processing invoices and issuing payments for vendors and individuals. This includes payments to foreign nationals, students, faculty, staff, and independent contractors.
Accounts Payable is also responsible for the voiding and reissuing of payments made by the University. Payments are made against approved purchase orders (POs) and using the Penn Marketplace (PME) electronic SP/Non-PO Payment Request forms. The Non-PO Payment Request form is used for payments when a PO cannot be issued.
Discontinuing AP’s Paymode Program
We are planning to discontinue the use of our Bank of America Paymode program. Communications have gone out to Suppliers using Paymode to notify them of the change. All Suppliers have the option to sign up for the Epayables virtual credit card program or ACH/direct deposit by registering in the Penn Marketplace. Suppliers will be instructed to contact buyers if they want to become a registered Supplier. We continue to reach out to vendors to switch their payment option.
Terms for Suppliers with exception terms will not be impacted.
