Non-PO Invoice Processing

This guide will cover:

General Information

A Non-PO invoice is a payment method to pay for goods/services that do not require to be procured and approved through the purchase requisition/purchase order process. Once a Non-PO invoice is submitted for approval, it will route through the approval workflow (typically starting with the cost center approver and/or Principal Investigator), and once approved the payment will be initiated to the supplier.

All Non-PO invoices must have an invoice attached when processing through the WyoCloud Financial Management System. For specific goods such as office supplies, lab supplies, and computers, it is still preferred to purchase these items via the procurement catalogs.

  

IMPORTANT: Not all expenses/services can be processed on a Non-PO invoice.  Invoices must be under $5,000 with a few other exceptions outlined in the below table. Expenses that are $5,000 and more must be processed through a purchase requisition.

Non-PO Invoice Exceptions

There are two different exceptions to the $5,000 threshold when processing Non-PO invoices.

  1. Expenses that cannot be processed on a Non-PO Invoice, regardless of amount. These expenses must be processed through a purchase requisition.
  2. Expenses that are not governed by the $5,000 threshold and can be processed for any amount on a Non-PO Invoice.

 

                 

Regardless of any exceptions or dollar amounts, any purchase for goods/services can be processed through a purchase requisition instead of a Non-PO invoice if the department deems necessary.

All expenses, unless outlined below, that are $5,000 or more must be processed through the Non-Catalog Purchase Requisition process if they are not purchased through the procurement catalogs.
