Accounts Payable Office
2015 Zumberge Hall
Welcome to the Accounts Payable Webpage!
The Accounts Payable department at GVSU processes hundreds of invoices each day. By following a few simple steps you can help us expedite the payment process.
- Whenever possible, use your department or individual p-card for smaller purchases that don't require a purchase order or direct bill to GVSU
- Make sure we have the vendor's current Taxpayer Identification Form (W9, W8 BEN or W8 BEN-E) on file
- Make sure all invoices are sent directly, as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, or if e-mail is not an option, faxed to 616-331-3287 or mailed to GVSU - Accounts Payable, 1 Campus Drive, 2015 Zumberge Hall, Allendale, MI 49401
Note: please do not send a link to the invoice, we must receive the document as an attachment.

Using New Vendors - If the vendor you select is not already in the Banner Finance System, you will need to ask them for their completed Taxpayer Identification Form (W9, W8 BEN or W8 BEN-E.) If they do not have one, they will need to complete the appropriate blank form listed below and submit it to Accounts Payable at email@example.com.
