 Which DV Payment Reason Code Do I Use?

Not sure what code to use for your DV? Visit the Disbursement Voucher Payment Reason Codes page for a full listing of payment reason names, codes, and descriptions of payment categories for Disbursement Vouchers. Don’t forget to include the proof of payment, copy of the credit card statement, or copy of the cancelled check (front and back) to ensure timely reimbursement.

More Tips

Send all invoices/payment inquiries to:

Fiscal year-end close is quickly approaching. Keeping in mind the following information will help get your invoices processed as quickly as possible.

  • All invoices (except for Facilities Management, Design & Construction) are processed and approved according to the workflow built into KFS – you do not need to send an email approval. Invoices that are $10K and above automatically route to the fiscal officer for review and approval prior to being paid.
  • Sub-award Purchase Order’s (PO) must have two lines:
    • Line 1 - for $25,000, which is UCI’s federal negotiated rate.
    • Line 2  - for the remaining amount.
  • Invoices for product or services provided prior to June 30, 2022, must have a valid purchase order. The purchase order must be:
    • Open
    • Approved
    • Have available funds (enough funds to pay all open invoices through June 30, 2022).
    • Amended and FINAL prior to June 1, 2022, for High Value/High Risk, Contract or Recurring Payment PO’s.

Vendor Onboarding: Don’t Delay Onboarding Payees

Payees must be onboarded through PaymentWorks to be paid on a Purchase Order (PO), Disbursement Voucher (DV) or TEM (Travel, Entertainment, Move/Relocation) document. Please submit onboarding requests now to avoid delays of payments or risk missing fiscal year-end close deadlines.

Important Note: Please notify Accounts Payable once your PO has been approved and finalized so we can process your invoices prior to June 30.
