The Disbursement request is for individuals and is not intended for contractors and vendors. Log into the Controller's section of the AU portal. Next select the Disbursement request link under "Accounts Payable Documents". This will create a form that must be completed and sent to Accounts Payable who will generate a check.

American University is required to meet the regulations of the Internal Revenue Service in regards for payments to individuals. In order to do so, it will be necessary that all new vendors have a proper W-9 Form on file to be entered into Datatel, the University's accounting system, before requisitions can be processed. Datatel will reject all requistions without a vendor code. This has been in effect since September 11, 2006.
