Submit 50 or More Payment Requests

Before You Begin

If you need to pay numerous and different payees for the same purpose, you may use a "feeder file" to submit the transactions at one time. Feeder files are not processed through the Travel Expense Management (TEM) system.

Begin

To submit 50 or more payment requests:

  1. Contact University Payables (UPAY) to receive a copy of the Excel feeder file and instructions for entering the transaction data.
  2. Do not change the layout or format of the Excel template; doing so will cause errors and keep the file from being processed in Banner.
  3. Complete a Request a General Encumbrance/Wire Transfer Payment form containing the business purpose, all relevant supporting documentation, and original authorization signatures.
  4. Email the completed Excel template and form to UPAY at UP-ARS@uillinois.edu.
  5. UPAY exports the file to Banner for processing the payments.
