Parked Documents in SAP are used by departments to request payment to a vendor for goods and services not related to a purchase order, framework order, an online order from a preferred vendor (i.e. Office Depot) or a procurement card purchase. Payment of Visiting Personnel and Miscellaneous Expense Worksheets and Employee Travel Worksheets or Mileage Worksheets can be input as parked documents. This type of payment is sometimes referred to as a direct pay.
Departments park the payment, record the SAP document on the paperwork and forward the original paperwork to Accounting Services, Eppley 208. A copy of the paperwork should be retained for the departmental file. Accounting Services reviews the document and posts the payment. Transaction figures do not appear on departmental FI reports until the parked document is posted by Accounting Services.
A list of names and a business purpose/agenda must accompany any payment for food expenses or award expenses. This documentation is reviewed for adherance to University and State of Nebraska guidelines.
Questions regarding the status of a parked document can be directed to Joyce Kosmacek or David Miller at 402.554.2320.
