Accounts Payable - update on payment processes

March 24, 2020

The Accounts Payable team is continuing its services with minimal interruption during the Shelter in Place order. Most services will continue unaffected, however, until further notice, the production of paper checks will be run once a week on Wednesdays.

We encourage you to sign up for electronic funds transfer (EFT) if you have not already done so.

Updates to payment processes

  • Payments to suppliers, employees, and students will continue to be processed on a daily basis through EFT.
  • Checks for students (including refunds, stipends, and financial aid) and employees (reimbursements), which were previously run daily and checks for suppliers, which were run on Tuesday and Thursdays, will now only be run on Wednesdays and will be put in the mail for distribution on Thursdays. 

  • All payments to suppliers by Payment Plus will continue to be run Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

  • Wire Transfer Payments to suppliers will continue as usual on an “as needed” basis.

  • Until further notice, we will not be able to hold checks for pick up. If you previously had your check held for pickup, please reach out to the Accounts Payable team at disburse@berkeley.edu and we will work with you to create an alternate plan.
