Invoice workflow maps


  1. Receipt of Invoice and Physical Material or Access
    1. Retain all packing slips. If material arrives without a packing slip or paperwork of any kind, a copy should be made of the front of the envelope material arrives in.
    2. If the physical original invoice is smaller than a half page, tape all four sides onto a full blank sheet of paper. Do not place tape over any printed information on the original invoice.
    3. If the original invoice is not legible, request a new invoice from the vendor.
    4. Stamp all paperwork (receipt, invoice, packing slip ) with Invoice Verification stamp. Be sure to place stamp on totals page in a location where it can be filled out.  
      1. Invoice Received: add date and initials 
      2. Goods/Services Received:
        1. Physical Item - add date and initials for when the item was received and who received it. 
        2. Electronic item - use the invoice date and the initials of receiver. (if resource is subscription based, use subscription date range in lieu of invoice date)
    5. For continuing electronic resources write subscription dates on the invoice if not printed.
    6. If the invoice processing date is more than 30 days after the invoice date, we must note the reason why on the invoice.
    7. For prepaid monographs, note estimated date material should arrive at NCSU.
    8. Redact all vendor banking and tax information from the invoice. This can be done with the use of a blank sharpie or white out. Exception: Foreign currency invoices that will be paid by check should not be redacted.
