eRFPs Eliminate Paper Handling, Speed Up Processing
University Finance has automated the request for payment form—RFP (F4)—so that departments can complete and submit it electronically from start to finish. Not only will this eliminate paper handling, but eRFPs can also be processed for payment much quicker than paper RFPs. Optional training is available by registering for a session on the Finance Training Sessions site. To learn more about the benefits of eRFPs to departments and details of processing eRFPs, review the eRFP Guide located on the Finance Forms site.
