Payment in Advance (PIA)
A payment in advance is a payment issued to a vendor before the service is performed or the commodity is received.
Examples of PIAs include: services, hotel deposits, catering services, and payments to Guest Lecturers. Non-Resident Aliens are not allowed on PIAs. See the Procedures for Payment to NRA Individuals Policy at http://www.csus.edu/aba/audit/Tax-Compliance/Nonresident-Alien.html.
Payments in advance must be requested through the Procurement & Contract Services office. The request for a payment in advance must be noted on the requisition. Please contact Procurement Services for any questions regarding PIAs.
Once Procurement & Contract Services authorizes a PIA, the Accounts Payable office will issue a check and a disbursement voucher to the vendor. The vendor must sign the disbursement voucher and return it Accounts Payable. The disbursement voucher is issued in lieu of an invoice.
All requests for a PIA must be received in Accounts Payable before 2:00 p.m. the day before the check is needed. Any PIA requests received in Accounts Payable after 2:00 p.m. will be processed the following business day regardless of the date the check is needed.
