Request for Payment
When to Use Request for Payment
The Institution recommends that you use the request for payment method when purchasing items less than $10,000.
Request for Payment Form
The Request for Payment form is used to pay individuals and includes expense reimbursement, personal service payments (non-WHOI employees), subscription renewals, to vendors and includes invoice, or other payments not related to purchase orders. This form is not to be used for travel reimbursement or prepaid purchase orders.
- A form W9 is required for all requests for services. (For WHOI employees, reimbursement for personal services must go through payroll.)
- Supporting documentation is a must. If it is not included payment may be delayed. Original receipts are required, not photocopies.
- Checks requiring enclosures (applicaitons, letters, forms, etc) must have two copies of the backup information attached to the request for payment form.
- Please indicate any special handling instructions in the box provided
- If there is more than one payee, complete a separate Request for Payment form for each payee.
- No request for payment will be processed without the required signatures. (i.e. Department Chair, Principal Investigator, Department Administrator, Manager or person who is directly responsible for the project account). No one may authorize payment or reimbursement to themselves.
