GrizMart AP Processes
What does AP do after the department has
submitted a Non-PO payment?
All payments go into a Non-PO Payment AP review folder. Each
member in AP will assign their section of the Alphabet.
• Vendors starting with A-I are assigned to Lisa Coon
• Vendors starting with L-S are assigned to Nicole Thompson
• Vendors starting with J,K,T-Z are assigned to Cathy Butler
Once assigned each AP member will review their assigned
AP opens the Non-PO form by clicking on the product description. We
open the attachments and verify the information on invoice to what
was entered and also what account codes are being used and assign
payment due date
If everything seems to
be in order, we will
save changes made
to form and then
the requisition. Once
this is done Grizmart
creates the PO then
creates the Invoice
(Z#). The invoice is
sent to banner for
AP steps for a PO payment

Invoices for PO’s
• When the invoice has been reviewed to ensure all
proper information is listed on the invoice such as PO#,
invoice number, vendor name, etc. The invoice is
scanned and sent to our 3rd party vendor Docufree.
Docufree sends to SciQuest to be imported into GrizMart
and attached to the PO listed on the invoice as an
invoice that is ready to be processed for payment.
• The import process may take up to 3 days to import the
invoice to appear in the AP processing file in GrizMart
What does AP do after invoices are imported to Grizmart?
Once invoices appear in the processing file each AP Specialist
assigns their respective vendor invoices to themselves and begins
the matching process to get the invoices paid
• The AP matching process begins by opening the attachment so we
can see the actual invoice
• AP will check the invoice date, number, remit to address, lines of
PO, amounts, and due date( if changes are made we click save
then approve/complete)
• There are vendors who submit there invoice electronically. These
vendor we do not see an actual invoice.
