STATE OF MARYLAND PROMPT PAYMENT LAW
As an agency of the State of Maryland, UMBC is required by law to pay all vendors within 25 calendar days from the later of : The date UMBC received goods or services or the date UMBC received the proper original invoice.
HOW YOU CAN HELP US KEEP UMBC IN COMPLIANCE
- Date stamp each invoice you receive directly from the vendor. This date must reflect the day the invoice arrived on campus, not the day you reviewed it.
- Forward all original invoices to Accounts Payable without delay. Be sure to provide approvals where necessary.
- Enter a receipt into PeopleSoft immediately once confirmation of the goods and/or services have been received, whether or not you have an actual invoice.
- If you choose to pay any of those invoices by Visa, rather than using your purchase order, please return the invoice copy to Accounts Payable with a note to that effect so we can clear the invoice from our pending file.
TEAMWORK MAKES A DIFFERENCE !
