Announcements

IMPORTANT VENDOR NOTIFICATION

On MAY 1, 2014, UTSA implemented a new Financial ERP System, PeopleSoft 9.1. The System will not accept any variances between the purchase order items and the invoice line items, including variances related to unit price, extended price, freight charges, unit of measurement, or number of line items. To ensure proper and prompt payment of invoices, suppliers should use all efforts to minimize variances between the purchase order and invoice. Any variance will result in significant payment delays.
