Information for Vendors
UNO is an agency of the State of Nebraska, and is bound by the regulations, policies and procedures set forth by the Nebraska legislature and administered by the State of Nebraska Department of Administrative Services.
Policies and procedures set forth by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents and other university administrative entities govern issues specific to the university. Certain transactions are subject to Internal Revenue Service documentation and reporting.
All informational requests are handled through Accounts Payable. These include:
- Credit applications
- Direct billing applications
- IRS Form W9
For tax reporting purposes, the university requires that its vendors (including individuals) paid through Accounts Payable provide one of the following:
- A current federal tax identification number (FTIN)
- An IRS form W9 - Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification
- The university alternate form used to collect this information
This must be on file prior to any transactions with a vendor.
All invoices should be sent to our office at the address shown below and should include a UNO purchase order number and/or the contact name and phone number of the UNO personnel placing the order.
Normal payment processing time is approximately five to seven business days after the invoice has been approved for payment by the department obtaining the goods and/or services.
Payment is made by State of Nebraska Treasury Warrant (check). Warrants are mailed directly to vendors by the State of Nebraska unless documentation must accompany the payment to the vendor. The vendor invoice number is listed on the remittance portion of the check mailer. These warrants are valid for a period of one year.
All vendor payments over $25,000 must be paid via ACH payment. UNO also uses this process for vendors with a high volume of transactions.
If you have not received a payment, or if you require further information for a payment you have received, or if you would like to enroll in the ACH payment process, contact our office at: 402.554.2320
Every effort is made by UNO Accounting Services to handle vendor invoices within payment terms. However, we are also covered by the Prompt Payment Act of the Nebraska State Statutes, which allows payment in full for all goods delivered and services rendered on or before the forty-fifth calendar day after:
(a) the date of receipt of by the agency for the goods or services or
(b) the date of receipt by the agency of the bill for the goods or services, whichever is later
UNO is sales tax exempt in the State of Nebraska. We have also been granted some out-of-state sales tax exemptions.
