GW iBuy+ Invoice

GW iBuy+ Invoice, a new online invoice processing solution, is now implemented. Use the cloud-based GW iBuy+ Invoice to manage your commercial invoices - both with a Purchase Order (PO) or non-PO related - and other payment requests such as honoraria, awards, prizes, and non-employee expense reimbursements from submission to approval to payment. Interfaces and file uploads will not be impacted by the implementation of iBuy+ Invoice. 

Submit invoices in a timely manner to University Payables via iBuy+ Invoice. You are strongly encouraged to take advantage of Capture for your commercial supplier invoices. Capture ‘lifts’ information, such as invoice number, invoice date, and invoice amount, from the invoice and creates an entry form. The form with the invoice attached is sent to the PO requester or the end-user identified on the invoice. The email address for Capture is [email protected].

Endowment requests require Office of the University Controller approval. Submit endowment requests via the Endowment Request Workflow. More information is available on the University Controller website

Submit grant related DCFs for processing through the online submission form.

Users have quick and easy options to submit an invoice:

1. Capture - uses data extraction technology
2. Data entry form - similar to current payment request form

Electronic submission
Approval Invoice can be routed to approvers within GW iBuy+ Invoice and approvers are automatically notified of the invoice.  Approvers can be manually selected to route the invoice. Electronic approvals
Communication Important information / messages about the invoice can be noted in iBuy+ Invoice by the approvers in the workflow. Eliminates multiple communication channels, such as emails and phone calls, about the invoice
Audit Transparency in transactions and quick resolution of mistakes / issues Reduces costs, eliminates redundancies
Reports Schools and departments can run reports on spending. Provides insight into school and department level costs or spending
Supplier Portal iSupply-registered vendors can send invoices directly to University Payables via Capture and also track the status of the invoice through supplier portal login. Suppliers are more independent, streamlines the invoice flow

The GW iBuy+ Invoice solution has replaced the online submission form on the website. The online submission form is only used for grant related Departmental Correction Forms, endowment related payments, and GWorld refunds. All other invoices submitted through the online submission form will be returned and the submitter will be asked to submit the invoices through GW iBuy+ Invoice.
