Processing Check Requests

Check requests are used to request payment for certain expenses that do not require the involvement of purchasing support. You can generate a check request in RU Marketplace and provide supporting documentation when submitting a check request. We receive and approve the request and process payment to the supplier.

You can confirm that the good or service is eligible for payment by check request using the Check Request Matrix (PDF). Remember to click on the white box labeled "Enable Editing"; this enables the form and follow the check request process.

Be sure to:

  • Refer to the check request matrix to determine if the request is a purchase order or a check request
  • Use the proper account code
  • Electronically submit required supporting documents with the check request
