Accounts Payable Shared Services across the University of Missouri System


At the Accounts Payable (AP) Shared Services Center, we provide transactional processing for the four campuses comprising our University of Missouri System.  As such, departments may focus on their core missions while we provide human capital and systems to ensure their payments are made in a timely and accurate manner while adhering to university policy, state law and federal regulations.

This website is designed to be an excellent source of information to understand the various payment methods used by our campuses.  As such, you will notice the tabs above labeled PO VOUCHERS, NON-PO VOUCHERS, TRAVEL AND EXPENSE, and VENDORS.  By clicking any of these tabs, you will discover an abundance of “how-to” knowledge specific to each payment type.

As a part of the Operational Excellence Initiative and as a best-in-class service center, we place a heavy emphasis on relationships building, problem solving, and continuous improvement.  As you explore this website and interact with our staff, please reach out to us with ideas and suggestions which could enhance our ability to serve you.

Best regards,
