Request for Purchase & Purchase Orders
Many vendors that work with Worcester State will accept Purchase Orders (POs) for services and goods. This is the University’s preferred payment method, and you should always plan on asking a vendor if they accept POs. Completing a Request for Purchase will generate a PO number for the vendor. You would also need to complete a Request for Purchase in advance if you are purchasing an item on your own that would be $100 or more.
Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for a Purchase Order to be generated.
Check Request Voucher
A Check Request Voucher is what the University uses to generate checks. They must be completed any time that you are making a purchase. Vouchers must be submitted with a copy of the bill or purchase receipt (store/paper receipts will need to be dropped off to OSILD or mailed in). A Check Request Voucher is also used to make a reimbursement.
Please allow up to 45 days for a check to be processed.
