Invoice Processing FAQ

How soon will I see my invoice in Oracle after I send it to the email address?

Invoices are typically imported into Oracle every hour.

How can I check if my invoice has been received in Oracle?

To confirm receipt of an invoice, follow the process described in the How to Perform an Invoice Inquiry Step-by-Step Guide.

What does Validation Status mean?

All invoices must be validated after they are created and before they are approved. The system will run a scheduled validation job to automatically match the details of the invoice to the details of the purchase order. The validation status on an invoice may reference one of the following:

  • Incomplete – invoice has been received and pending processing by AP staff. Invoices showing an incomplete status are processed by AP within seven days and priority is based on the invoice due dates.
  • Not Validated – invoice has been received but not yet validated by the system.
  • Needs revalidation – invoice failed validation and has been put on hold by the system or AP and can only be processed once the hold reason is resolved.
  • Validated – invoice has been successfully processed.
Does my invoice need to be approved?

Yes, once the invoice is validated the system will seek approval based on the configured approval workflow approval rules.

I received an approval notification. What do I do?
