Making Payment Requests

What is a Payment Request?

 

     The Payment Request form is a feature on Ideal-Logic that allows your organization to utilize the funds in your index. Requests may be created to pay internal organizations or individuals, external vendors, or checked-out for in-person purchases.

 

     Review the graphic to gauge the nature of your request and follow the corresponding directions below to complete the form. All payment requests will be reviewed by our office before your organization is granted approval to proceed with your transaction.

 

DISCLAIMER: Only those officers approved as an authorized signer will have access to payment authorizations. Additionally, you will need the receiving department or club index to be able to fill out the form.

3. Click on “Payment Authorization” in the light green box on the top right. The payment authorization will appear with an option to either do a payment authorization or make an advance request.
4. Now you will need to select the appropriate form. A Payment Authorization is used to reimburse an individual for expenses incurred out of pocket, to pay a vendor invoice or initiate a journal voucher transfer to another OSU index. The Advance Request is to request funds from a RSO fund in advance of an expenditure.

9. Once you are done, click “Journal Voucher” and put any special instructions into the text box. An example of a special instruction is if you need the recipient to receive the attached supporting documentation. You can leave this blank if you do not have any special instructions to add.

SSOs may request access to a Pcard for procurement of goods and services.  Pcards are for communal use and are intended to be checked out and returned immediately upon completion of a purchase.  The following is required for use of a Pcard:   

  • Pcard requests are available through the Payment Request on the Student Organizations Database (Ideal-Logic). 

  • If this purchase is related to a club event/activity meeting, an Activity Plan/Report needs to be submitted before the card is approved for use. 

  • If activity is tied to an SOA Grant, the grant needs to be approved before the card is approved for card use. 

  • The vendor must:  

  • Accept credit cards. 

  • Provide an itemized receipt; It is the responsibility of the Club Officer to obtain and share the itemized receipt with SOA. 

Pcards may be utilized as follows: 

  1. SOA professional staff purchase items for the club. 

  • Drop-in use is available if there is a card and staff are available at the time of the visit.  

  1. Club Officer will visit the SOA Office to purchase items on an office computer. 

  • Drop-in use is available if there is a card and staff are available at the time of the visit.  

  1. Check out the Pcard for in-store purchases in Corvallis or nearby area. 

  • It is recommended that a request is submitted at least 24 (business) hours before you need to use the card. 

  • Drop-in use is available if there is a card and staff are available at the time of the visit.  

  • Pcard must be utilized and returned within the agreed upon check out window.   

  • If Pcard is needed longer 1-2 days, contact SOA to discuss the situation before submitting a request 

  1. Check out the Pcard for club travel. 

  • It is recommended that a request is submitted as soon as possible but at least 72 hours before you need it to pick up the card. 

  • Drop-in use is not permitted for travel.  

Note: All items sold by a vendor have a merchant code. OSU blocks some merchant codes for financial safety reasons. It does not mean that we cannot complete your purchase with the Pcard, but that SOA may need to get additional approval before making the purchase. Unfortunately, there is no way to know what will get blocked beforehand. If your purchase is blocked, SOA will have to wait for approval before attempting the purchase again. Given that information, we highly encourage you to submit this form sooner rather than later to ensure enough time for approval if needed.
