The following information provides descriptions of the tools and systems that new business personnel will need to access in order to process and track vendor payment and departmental deposits.
E-Forms: E-Forms is a form creation tool that allows user access to all of the Division's standard business forms including payment requests for vendor and business travel reimbursements.
Access to E-Forms is achieved by visiting https://eforms.ksu.edu:8080/eforms/eformsMenu.aspx

FIS: FIS is the University's central Oracle financial accounting system. Activity is reflected in FIS by your departmental project, funding source, departmental organization and object code.

University Procurement Cards (BPC): BPCs are widely used by campus faculty and staff to expedite payment for a variety of travel costs, equipment and supplies.
