Financial and Legal Services Procurement Services


Accounts Payable

The Accounts Payable Team is responsible for processing all invoices for the University and making timely payments to the University suppliers and external personnel. Payments are made using the BACS electronic bank to bank transfer system. Payment runs are scheduled every Wednesday and the payments clear into supplier accounts two working days later on the Friday.

The Team sits in the Procurement Services Department and works closely with Procurement to provide guidance and help to both staff and suppliers on a range of issues including invoicing and payment queries.

There are approximately 35,000 invoices processed per year. The team is responsible for processing paper and electronic invoices via the University’s ‘Purchase to Pay’ system (MMU P2P). One of our main objectives in conjunction with Procurement is to significantly increase the number of suppliers submitting electronic invoices.

The Team also works closely with Faculty and Service Accountants to identify and calculate month and year-end accruals and prepayments.
