STATE OF MARYLAND
PROMPT PAYMENT LAW
As an agency of the State of Maryland, UMBC is required by law
to pay all vendors within 30 calendar days from the
later of : The date UMBC received goods or services or
the date UMBC received the proper original invoice.
HOW YOU CAN
HELP US KEEP UMBC IN COMPLIANCE
- Date stamp each invoice you receive directly
from the vendor. This date must reflect the day the invoice
arrived on campus, not the day you reviewed it.
- Forward all original invoices to Accounts Payable
without delay. Be sure to provide approvals where necessary.
- When you complete a Receiver or the Goods &
Services stamp, be sure to state the date you took delivery
of the goods or services, as well as the date you signed off.
- When blanket invoice copies are forwarded to
you for approval, date stamp them on the day you receive them
in your office and approve them without delay.
- If you choose to pay any of those invoices
by Visa, rather than using your blanket order, please return
the invoice copy to Accounts Payable with a note to that effect
so we can clear the invoice from our pending file.
