NOTE 1:  A “Substitute W-9” will need to be completed if you are submitting an invoice for a vendor that the university has not recently conducted business.  FSS can access the vendor maintenance system (VMS) to compare information on the invoice with data in the VMS.  If this differs FSS will contact vendor.  Once the vendor submits the accurately completed W-9 form and it is entered and accepted in the VMS,  the invoice will be processed within 24 hours.

NOTE 2:  OOP refers to staff requesting reimbursement for those transactions that were paid by their personal funds.
