Make note of the process for paying invoices

Monday, September 26th, 2022

In order to process an invoice, the Accounts Pay team needs all of the below-mentioned information:

  • Vendor ID number
  • Vendor Name as appearing in PeopleSoft
  • PeopleSoft PO number
  • PeopleSoft receipt number
  • And finally, a copy of the invoice.

AP receives a multitude of emailed payment requests, and there is a high probability of those getting buried, especially in cases wherein any of the above information is missing in the email.

To comply with audit requirements, AP does not have access to the purchasing module; thus they are unable to themselves obtain PO and receipt numbers from PeopleSoft.

In order to improve our current “Procure to Pay” process, and to help you to pay your invoices in a timely manner, we have released a Request for Payment form. This form replaces emailed and paper payment requests.

We are planning a formal training session in the coming months where we will share more information with you. In the meantime, feel free to email your questions to purchasing@georgefox.edu.

Thank you,
The Accounts Pay and Purchasing Teams

Sign up for vocational discipleship group by Saturday

Monday, September 26th, 2022

Organizations and institutions can seem cold and inhuman, somehow disconnected from the lives we lead. But the reality, especially in modern society, is that most of us are organizational beings. We work in companies or other types of institutions. We are members of churches and other civic organizations.

Join us this semester to explore “God’s Purpose for your Organizational Life.” Over seven meetings, we will seek to uncover some surprising biblical truths about human institutions. In the process, we also discover that our lives can be more fully imbued with God’s purposes when we begin to appreciate that he is not just interested in our individual and family lives, but also our organizational lives.

This group is a great opportunity for students (graduate and undergraduate) who want to explore the integration of faith, work and vocation!

No outside preparation is needed. All meetings will include a free catered dinner. Email Travis Pickell at  tpickell@georgefox.edu by Saturday, Oct. 1, if you are interested. (Space is limited to 12 students, so do not delay!)

Meetings will be held on Oct. 11, Oct. 25, Nov. 1, Nov. 8, Nov. 22, Nov. 29 and Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Location to be decided.
