Invoicing and Payment

The Invoicing and Payment section includes important information for Suppliers working with UBC.

Suppliers should note that all invoices should be sent to the university using the email address.

If an invoice must be physically mailed on paper, please send it to:

University of British Columbia
Attn: Requestor name (the name of your UBC contact)
TEF3-5th Floor 6190 Agronomy Road
Vancouver BC V6T 1Z3

All invoices sent to UBC need to include one of the following:

  • A UBC Purchase Order (PO) number
  • The name of a UBC requestor plus their department, if a PO number was not provided

If this information is not provided on the invoice, then UBC will not be able to process the invoice for payment.

Suppliers should also include Purchase Order numbers on delivery documentation/packing slips if possible. Providing the UBC PO number on delivery documentation/packing slips will expedite receipt and payment.

Please contact the Integrated Service Centre if you have any questions.
