Single Payment Vendor Clarification

At a recent meeting with administrators the question was raised if the college could use our single payment vendor number for any one-time payments under $600. This question arose because the check request form seemed to imply that we could. When the college investigated this question, we were told no -that the single payment vendor only applied to certain types of one-time payments. The form should have more clearly stated that it applied to:

  1. Subject Payment less than $600
  2. Refund (any amount)
  3. Other (contact Disbursement Services for approval)

On a positive note, they will allow the single payment vendor option for reimbursing moving expenses (any amount) for employees with a future hire date. They are considering other exceptions as well and will communicate those decisions once they have been made.
