Electronic Accounts Payable Check Request Initiative Update and Training Schedule

As a follow up to our previous communications and in preparation for the upcoming Electronic Accounts Payable Check Request implementation on June 3, 2013, we would like to provide an update.  A training schedule for your Department Accounts Payable Representatives who will be initiating electronic Accounts Payable Check Requests, along with business managers who will be supporting this process is included below.

The Advisory team members began using the tool as a pilot group on April 22, 2013 and are providing feedback to our project team as necessary.  In addition, we have been partnering with the management centers to determine the implementation approach and the need to minimize assignment of the roles to ensure appropriate levels of controls and security.  You may have received communications from your management center contact regarding this process.  Many areas have centralized processing for these types of payments; therefore, no changes may be applicable for your areas. 

The upcoming training schedule is included below.  Please view the training page to register for a session.  As a reminder, if you do not initiate Accounts Payable Check Requests using the current process, no changes are applicable for you.  As a result, you will not need to attend any of the training sessions.
