Treasury Services has the following responsibilities with regards to the checkwriting activity of the University of Michigan:
- Supplier Checkwriting is responsible for creating and printing checks, ACH payments, and obtaining foreign currency draft payments to cover goods, services, refunds, reimbursements, travel expenses and related university obligations. This is accomplished using the M-Pathways payment cycles.
- Checks and ACH payment cycles are run daily, with the exception of University of Michigan holidays and Federal Reserve Bank holidays. Checkwriting is also closed for the winter season days, which usually run from December 26th through the 31st.
- Supplier Checkwriting creates and disburses more than 400,000 various types of payments a year.
- It should be noted that Checkwriting is a production unit. Any questions related to vouchers, their creation or payment, as well as supplier information and numbers should be directed to Accounts Payable, the Accounts Payable customer service desk in the Shared Services Center (734) 615-2000.
