Direct Payment Form Instructions

Direct Payment Form – Dynamic Forms Instructions  


The Direct Pay Form is used to pay vendors that do not have a Purchase Order in place and to reimburse paid expenses. A Purchase Request through Self Service Banner should be used for vendor items and services that have not already been ordered and paid.
