Business Process: Creating a Voucher

Voucher build is a batch process used to create vouchers from transactions sent from the HR/CMS PeopleSoft system for payroll vendors and student refunds, as well as quick invoices entered into the PS Financials system.  Depending on the transaction type, voucher build will have to be run daily, bi-weekly or monthly.  The originator of the transactions will communicated with Accounts Payable how many vouchers are too be created and the total monetary amount of the transactions.  Once voucher build has completed successfully, budget check will be run on the vouchers and a pay cycle will be run to cut payments.
