Payments to Canadian Suppliers (companies) are processed on a monthly basis depending on authorization and documentation received by Accounts Payable. Delays occur in the payment process if correct documentation is not received on a timely basis and depending on the workload of Accounts Payable. Documentation should include the information listed under Procedures. Please do not promise and expect payments on a specific date without first confirming the fact with Accounts Payable.
Please note that there is a weekly cheque run but we pay suppliers on a monthly basis.
US and Foreign Suppliers
US cheque runs occur every two weeks depending on authorization and documentation received by Accounts Payable. Payments to foreign suppliers (outside the US) are done by money orders, bank drafts, or wire transfers. There is no charge for money orders or bank drafts, but there is a $40.00 fee (approximate) for wire transfers. This amount will be charged to the department/grant requesting the payment.
