      • Continue to submit invoices to AP with invoice vouchers to specify approval or special handling

    Multiplier effect
    Multiplier Effect

    • Estimates the ripple effect in the state economy where spending occurs

    • UW Spending with local suppliers provides these suppliers with addt’l dollars that they re-spend in the local economy  “multiplier effect.”

    • For every $1 of direct UW spending, $1.275 of indirect spending is generated for the state economy via employment, tax revenue, and business spending

    Non po invoice payments
    Non PO Invoice Payments

    In January, Procurement Services developed a lean team to streamline Purchases. The team learned that there are times when a PO is created in PAS simply to make a payment to a supplier when a physical PO copy is not required. We set out to provide a flexible, less expensive alternative to meet campus’s payment needs. What resulted is the Non-PO Invoice module in Ariba.

    Non po invoice payments1

    What is a Non-PO Invoice?

    ANSWER: An online tool used to make a payment to a supplier when a PO is not required.

    Ex: Items purchased under the UW’S Direct Buy limit (currently $3500) when the supplier is not in eProcurement, registrations, memberships, etc.

    How will this help departments?

    Cuts down the groups involved in making a payment (less touches to the process)

    Invoices are retained in the department which reduces the amount “lost”

    Greater flexibility with budgets, account codes and PCA codes on a line item basis (previously unavailable in PAS)

    Complete transparency of the invoice process from beginning to end
