Direct Pay

A direct pay check is a non-payroll reimbursement check that is issued without the requirement of a LSUHSC purchase order. These reimbursements do not follow the formal requisition / purchasing process but are required to comply with the Louisiana Procurement Code (RS 39:1551) and the Governor's Small Purchase Executive Order- All direct pay check requests are reviewed by Monica Martin, Candace Thomas, and/or Danielle Burlison.

online Payment Request (replacing paper Direct Pay check request)

The Payment Request allows users in self-service to submit a non-purchase order invoice very easily. Utilization of the Payment Request feature allows users outside of the Direct Pay department to initiate and submit non-purchase order invoice payments and reimbursements.
