Approval of an Oracle Payment Request

All Oracle Payment Requests require at least two approvals at the department/school level before the system will forward to the appropriate Central Support. !--The first level of Central Support approval is based on the payment type. Central Support approval for a Payment Request can be Accounting Services, the Accountant, or Student Accounting. The dollar amount as well as the object code may require additional levels of Central Administration approval. When all reviews and approvals are made, the request is sent to Accounts Payable. A check is generated the night of complete approval.

The Oracle Payment Request Number

The Oracle Payment Request number is a seven digit number generated by the Oracle system unique to the Payment Request. The Payment Request number is generated at the Requestor level and must be used for all documentation applicable to the request.
