Payment Request Center

Payment Request Center

Delivered in FSCM PUM Image 6, PeopleSoft Payables 9.2 provides the ability for users to enter payment requests such as non-PO, miscellaneous, and other expenses into PeopleSoft. End users from Marketing, Legal, Operations and other departments may now initiate and submit their expenses without AP assistance. This has a positive impact by reducing the AP team’s time and effort for entering payments on behalf of users. Approved employees can find the Payment Request Center on the Employee Self Service homepage.
