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. This request must be clearly marked on the paperwork when it is submitted for processing. Warrants cannot be mailed to a department. We require a signature to release a warrant, therefore it must be picked up and signed for in our office, 208 EAB.
Occasionally a vendor will return a warrant to UNO. This happens if an order is canceled, returned or if duplicate payment has been issued. If a warrant is returned please forward it to Accounts Payable, 208 EAB. Please include any information 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.
