Getting Paid at the University


An invoice must reference the correct 7-digit Purchase Order Number to be paid.

This number must be clearly marked on the invoice, and on all related documentation and correspondence. Invoices without Purchase Order numbers received in Accounts Payable will be discarded without contacting the vendor and without payment.

All invoices for Purchase Orders must be sent to:

University of Virginia -- Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services
P.O. Box 400197
Charlottesville, VA 22904

or e-mailed to: 

Invoices cannot be paid if sent to any other area of the University.


To Ensure Prompt and Accurate Payment

  • Payments will be made from original invoices only. Payments will be made from original invoices and emailed copies.
  • Invoice line items on the invoice must match, line for line, items shown on the University's purchase order. If there are any unit price or quantity variances from the line item on the PO, payment may be delayed.
  • Unless prearranged by the PSDS, all payments will be paid based on the terms associated with a vendor from the date the goods were received by the ordering department, or from the date a valid original invoice is received in PSDS, whichever is later. The University's standard payment terms are net-45.
  • For questions regarding specific invoices or payments, you may speak with an Accounts Payable Specialist by calling (434) 924-4212, option 1. When calling, please have the University's PO Number available.
