Accounts Payable

The Accounts Payable Team reviews and processes supplier invoices that reference a valid UC San Diego Health purchase order (PO).

Certain non-purchase order invoices, such as direct payments for telephone, utility and UPS bills, are also processed by the AP Team.

Team members strive to provide quality customer service by acting as the liaison between UC San Diego Health departments, suppliers and/or third-party partners, such as Transcepta, by promptly addressing all inquiries.
