Disbursements is responsible for processing invoices and issuing payments for vendors and individuals. This includes payments to foreign nationals, students, faculty, staff, and independent contractors.
Disbursements 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.
