Welcome to Accounts Payable

Accounts Payable Updates:

Check Pickup

We have changed the time frame that you are able to pick up Special Handling checks. These checks may be picked up at the Angell Building, 166 Service Rd., on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Please call (517) 355-1700 to schedule an appointment to pick up the check.

  • A Special Handling Rush Mail request check will be processed and mailed as normal each day.

  • A Special Handling Hold for Pickup request check will be available on the closest Tuesday or Thursday.

At this time, we are also asking that you evaluate the need for a Hold for Pickup check. As an alternative, we would be happy to mail the check via intercampus mail or USPS. Due to the current circumstances, please consider this as an optimal choice.

Emailing Invoices

During this time of working remotely, we are aware that some supplier invoices that have been mailed to offices are not being forwarded to Accounts Payable for processing. So that we are processing invoices efficiently and in line with the terms and conditions of the purchase order, please communicate to your suppliers to send Accounts Payable the invoices via email to MSUPAY@msu.edu.

Specific instruction for submitting instruction to Accounts Payable is available on our website.

Accounts Payable processes invoice payments for purchases made through the Finance System. Purchase order payments are made based on the terms negotiated between Purchasing and the supplier.

Invoices are electronically routed in the Finance System for payment approval and departmental retention. Supplier check information is readily accessible.

News regarding PO Admin Fee

In December, we communicated a plan intended to help support our procurement and logistics activities. Based on feedback from our campus stakeholders and suppliers, the university is not moving forward with the PO Administrative Fee. Suppliers will not incur fees based on purchase order spend.
