Payments are 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.
There may be situations in which a department or vendor needs to arrange for pick up of the warrant or other special handling. You request must be clearly marked on the paperwork when it is submitted for processing. Warrants can not be mailed to your department. We require a signature to release a warrant, therefore you must pick it up in our office, Eppley 208 and sign for it.
Occasionally a vendor will return a warrant to UNO. This happens if an order is cancelled, returned or if duplicate payment has been issued. If a warrant is returned to your department forward it to Teresa Carlson, Eppley 208. Please include any information you have regarding the reason for the return. A warrant cancellation will be processed and the funds returned to your cost object. The SAP document type for a Warrant Cancellation is NC.
