    Important information to know:

    1. Works of art: For the purposes of this guide, a work of art consists of tangible property that can be seen, measured, or touched.
    2. Avoid conflicts of interest: Refer to the appendices for information covering employee-vendor conflict of interest issues.
    3. Tax information: Payments may only be made to recipients with a Social Security Number or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Use IRS Form W-7 Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to apply for an ITIN number.
    4. Payment: If this is the first time the recipient will be receiving a UCSC non-payroll payment, complete a Payee_Setup_204 form.

  • Ways to pay

    A Pro-Card may only be used to purchase printing services from UCSC Printing Services. Purchases from any other vendor must be procured through CruzBuy. For more information about CruzBuy and the purchase order process, see Procurement Resources.

    • A direct payment cannot be made to the vendor.
    • Out-of-pocket payment for this type of good or service will not be reimbursed.

  • Receipt and documentation requirements

    The original vendor invoice must be submitted in order for a payment to be made to the vendor.

    • Email the FAST/AP Office at aphelp@ucsc.edu authorizing payment when the original purchase order amount is exceeded by $100 to $499.99.
    • Submit a change order request through CruzBuy for payments of $500 or more over the original purchase order amount.

  • Basic sales and use tax

    Generally, all purchases of tangible goods are subject to the assessment of sales or use tax.

    • If the full amount of sales tax is not collected by the vendor, the remaining amount of tax due will be charged to the department making the purchase.
    • A product, such as software, supplied in electronic form through e-mail attachment, internet, or facsimile is not subject to the payment of sales and use tax; the same product supplied on a magnetic disk, CD, or DVD is subject to sales and use tax.

    For more information on this, see below:
