Supplier Invoice Requests

A Supplier Invoice Request is used for non-invoice payments, such as honorariums, stipends, refunds, payments to guest speakers or governmental payments.

Please visit the Procure-to-Pay (P2P) page for additional training and resources. 


An honorarium is a payment of money or other thing of value to a person for the person’s participation in a usual academic activity for which no fee is legally required. An honorarium is provided as a token of appreciation for participation in an activity or event, and not as a contractual obligation to pay for services rendered. An honorarium is usually a one-time payment made to an individual (not a corporation, business, or partnership) who is not an employee of the University, for a special and non-recurring activity or event. ​

The term stipend refers to a form of compensation that is paid to certain individuals for services rendered, other work, or while they receive training. These payments typically help someone defray expenses.
