Submission Deadlines


All invoices, Check Request Forms, and Request for Check Forms must be submitted to Accounts Payable prior to 1:00 p.m. on the check run day as identified above. In order for Accounts Payable to process your requests, the following MUST be met:

  • A requisition must be entered in Datatel. See the Datatel Requisition Manual for more information.
  • The requisition must be approved by all required approvers (see the Approvers section of the Datatel Requisition Manual for more information).
  • The requisition must have a Purchase Order or Blanket Purchase Order number assigned to it.
  • An Invoice, Check Request Form, or Request for Check Form must be received by 1:00 p.m. on the check run day.

If any of these steps have NOT been met by the stipulated deadlines, your check will NOT be written. Accounts Payable puts every effort into meeting your requested deadlines. However, it is the responsibility of the requisitioner to make sure that the requisition is approved and a purchase order is assigned to your requisition prior to the submission deadline. The requisitioner's job does not end with the entry of the requisition. Again, failure to comply with these requests may result in your check not being printed.
