Direct Support Organizations (DSOs) at UF process invoices in myUFL by using vouchers from the Accounts Payable module. There are several different kinds of vouchers. Create an encumbered voucher to process invoices for a purchase made with purchase orders, or create an unencumbered voucher for pre-approved purchases made with no purchase orders. When sharing the cost of a purchase, as of July 1, 2010, use a journal entry. Please see the Journal Entry toolkit for instructions. Template vouchers save time and steps in processing many invoices to the same supplier. At UF, process only one invoice per voucher.

Effective March 1, 2014:  Employees in UFLOR use the myUF Payment Solutions system for reviewing and approving invoices for payment.  The following toolkit materials are intended for DSOs only.

You may notice the navigation in myUFL is different than what is shown in these training resources.  Rest assured, these changes are primarily look and feel differences. All policies and procedures discussed in these materials are accurate and up to date. Training materials will be updated to reflect the new look and menu of myUFL.
