As a health care setting, UConn Health still requires face masks and physically distancing inside our facilities. Get the latest on visitor guidelines, COVID-19 vaccines, and safety measures we have in place.

Overview

The Accounts Payable Department ensures all disbursements of UConn Health funds are done in accordance to policies and procedures of UConn Health. Failure to follow policies and procedures will put us on “Credit Hold” by our Vendors. Our knowledgeable staff is available to help vendors and staff with any payment related questions including reimbursement and invoice resolution. Please check our links on payment related questions.

Helpful Tips:
• All invoices should be sent to the Accounts Payable email inbox for payment: accountspayable@uchc.edu
• Invoices should be sent to the AP inbox only to avoid duplicate payment – please do not send the same invoice to an AP Staff member.
• Your email Subject should include some detail regarding the invoice (Examples: Vendor name, Invoice #, PO #, etc.)
• All pages of an invoice should be submitted to AP for valid documentation.
• If you are sending an approved invoice please ensure that the signer is an authorized approver for the PO fund.
• Many of our vendors will send out multiple copies of their invoices so please have patience with the AP staff if you are asked to approve an invoice that has already been sent to the AP inbox.
• Invoices should be checked for sufficient PO funds before approval is sent.
• Invoices usually take about 5 business days to be processed.
• When processed, invoices will follow the vendor payment terms listed in HuskyBuy unless a valid reason is provided for urgency – standard terms are 30 days.
• Checks are sent out on Mondays and Thursdays (may vary depending on holidays).
• Please send discounted invoices in a timely manner so that the AP team has time to process and take advantage of the discount given.
• Email approvals will not be accepted without the following details: PO #, Invoice amount, and a unique indication of the invoice being paid (Examples: Invoice #, Date, Billing Period, Month, etc.)
• Be sure that your PO has been fully invoiced before you request Solutions Team to close.
