An original invoice from the supplier is required for purchases, services, etc.  The invoice must have the supplier name, detail of items purchased or services received and must include the MCCCD Purchase Order number (PO #123654).  When placing orders or requesting services, provide the PO # to the supplier and request that the PO# be listed on the packing slip and invoice.

Verify that the supplier has the Ship-To as MCCs address and the Bill-To as the MCCCD Accounts Payable address.  If you receive an invoice at the MCC address, please contact the Supplier and have them change the Bill-To address to the MCCCD Accounts Payable address listed above.

What do I do if:

CFS Workflow Mailer Notification indicates Overbill

  • An overbill means that the invoice received does not match the dollar amount or the specific lines of the PO.
  • Requestor/Requisitioner must request an increase to their PO to pay the difference in the dollar amount and/or increase PO to reflect the lines of the invoices.
  • You cannot approve the invoice until the overbill has been removed this requires an increase to PO and by District A/P releasing the hold.

The invoice does not match PO or is dispute

  • If the invoice received does not match the quote or is a dispute or services not fully rendered or items not received, the Requestor/Requisitioner can request for District A/P to hold the invoice.
  • If the invoice is not MCCs or was paid by ProCard, the Requestor/Requisitioner should add a detailed comment as to why the invoice is being rejected and then click the Reject button.
  • If the invoice is a dispute, the Requestor/Requisitioner should add a detailed comment as to why the invoice is being disputed and then click the Reject button.  The Requestor/Requisitioner must contact the supplier to resolve the dispute.
  • If for any reason the invoice needs to be rejected the Requestor/Requisitioner must include a detailed comment as to what needs to be done with the invoice.  For example: If invoice needs to be applied to a different PO #, add comment to reattach invoice to new PO #.

 CFS Workflow Mailer Received for Missing Receiving Information

  • All goods POs must be online received by MCC Receiving.
  • Invoices for goods POs will not pay until both the online receiving is completed and the Requestor/Requisitioner approves via workflow.
