Three Way Matching
Purchase Order
Three Way Matching
1. The PO is always created first from a Requisition.
2. The merchandise is received in good order either
by Central Receiving, Scientific Receiving, or the
3. The invoice is received and entered into
PantherSoft by the Accounts Payable team of the
Controller’s Office.
Three Way Matching
Will AP pay the vendor without the vendor having
provided the service or merchandise?
Absolutely Not! Because of the Three Way Matching
rule, until the department enters into the system and
receives against the PO, the payment will never
leave the University. In effect the department
controls when payments are made by controlling the
receiving of the merchandise or service.
Three Way Matching
 Original Invoices must be sent to Accounts Payable.
A paper invoice or emailed is required for payment.
 Some Vendors send the invoice before the
merchandise arrives or the service is rendered.
 There is a State of Florida Regulation, FS 215.4223a-c, which allows a vendor to receive additional
Interest Payment on all open balances over 40 days
from the date of the accepted invoice.
