P2P (Purchase-to-Pay)

P2P means having a seamless and paperless automated workflow process for ordering, purchasing, approving, paying, and storing supplier invoices. The University has initiated a project to introduce P2P on a phased basis with its suppliers.

The service is available to all NUI Galway employees and postgraduate students with a valid six digit Employee Record (Core) payroll/scholarship ID.   For staff, this ID is available from your NUI Galway online payslip or Staff Card and for Scholarships, the Scholarship ID can be found on the monthly payment advice.

What is going to change?

P2P bookers and budget holders will no longer need to print invoices for authorisation, or to return to Accounts Payable for processing and payment.   Instead, invoices will be received electronically into Agresso and an email will be automatically sent to the booker and budget holder/nominee(s) with instructions on how to approve them.  Purchase Orders are no longer required for P2P suppliers.  There is no change to the booking process for P2P suppliers other than you must provide a valid six digit id number and cost centre at the time of booking.
