Coding Employees Or Students As Vendors
Reimbursement payments (travel expenses, etc.) made to an employee or student are processed in Banner using the direct-pay invoice.    If the employee or student has not been coded as a vendor, Banner halts invoice creation and alerts the user that the intended payee is an "invalid vendor".   Procurement Services personnel will code an employee or a student as a valid vendor following a request from appropriate authorized Banner users. 

E-mail the request to  The request should include the following pieces of information. 
  • intended payee's name
  • his/her M number
  • indication of whether he/she is an employee or a student
  • desired payment address
