Payment Options

PAYMENT REQUESTS

When you are unable submit a pre-commitment requisition (e.g. when the vendor does not accept purchase orders or you are paying for a service/order that has already been completed) you will need to pay the invoice using Payment Request (PR). Once approved, forward the invoice with the PR number listed, to Central AP for payment.

Harvard’s payment policy for all invoices is Net 30 unless a specific reason (e.g. vendor discount) warrants deviation from these terms and has been approved in advance.

WIRE TRANSFERS

Domestic wires are not allowed unless prior authorization is granted by the Financial Operations office.

Wires are processed in US currency ($1,000 and above), Foreign currency (any amount in the local currency used by the payee), or USD to Foreign currency.

Completed Wire transfer forms (US and Foreign Currency), along with the invoice, should be uploaded to the requisition.

Once the wire instructions have been confirmed by Financial Operations, the forms will be sent via courier to AP for processing/payment.
