Find a Non-Catalog or Check Request Invoice In WebNow

Non-catalog purchase orders (PO’s) receive manual invoices that are received by the Central Accounts Payable (AP) office.  These invoices are scanned and indexed (electronic record of invoice detail) into ImageNow. Non-catalog invoices are NOT tracked through KUPPS.

Check Request invoices are entered into KUPPS as an attachment at the time the check request is created.  These invoices can be found in KUPPS or ImageNow as KUPPS migrates the invoice image and indexed detail into ImageNow.
