The goal of Payment Services is to issue accurate and timely payments on behalf of the University, while providing employees, suppliers, and the Baylor community with the highest level of support and service.
When paying for goods and services, there are three methods of purchase:
- Purchase Order – The preferred method of purchasing at the University is to establish a Purchase Order (PO).
- Payment Request - For payments that cannot be transacted via PO, a Payment Request serves as a request for direct payment to the supplier. More information can be found in the Payment Request Reference Guide.
- Card Programs– When allowable, low-dollar purchases that are not feasible for PO issuance may be paid using a Purchasing Card (P-Card) or Travel Card. Cards should not to be used for all purchases, or to avoid using a PO.
