Pre Payments

Prepayments are FULL payments that are made PRIOR to receipt of goods or services. Prepayments are allowed for CERTAIN expenditures normally prepaid as a standard industry practice or where such prepayments are considered cost beneficial to the Commonwealth. A deposit (PARTIAL payment PRIOR to receipt of any good/service) is separate and distinct from a prepayment (payment IN FULL PRIOR to receipt of any good/service).

For TRAVEL-RELATED prepayments (such as conference or registration fees, airfare, shuttles, etc.) please use the links below for detailed information:

Conference or Registration Fee
Airfare OR Rail (including VRE)
Car Rentals
Internet Purchases

For NON travel-related prepayments per CAPP topic 20310, such as maintenance agreements, subscriptions, professional membership and insurance, use the table below when recording the start and end dates related to the period of service. The prepayment start and end dates are required for services or benefits that cover a specified period of time. For example, a membership usually covers a period of time lasting one year, or a subscription to a journal usually lasts a year. Paying for more than one year is not allowed unless a private funding source is used.

Depending upon the type of pre-payment, the following payment methods may be used and the PERIOD OF SERVICE MUST BE CLEARLY DOCUMENTED USING SPECIFIC CODING as detailed below:

  • SPCC and UMW Finance Card – In WORKS, use the drop-down menu for the PrePay Start Date (GL06) and Prepay End Date (GL07).  DO NOT type the dates; use the drop-down menu.
  • Banner as a Direct Pay – Enter start and end date in Description field and on Direct Pay paperwork
  • eVA – Enter start and end date in Description field on purchase order in eVA

*12-Month Prepayment Limit

  • In WORKS, if Oct-20 is selected under GL06, (start date) and Oct-21 is selected under GL07 (end date), it indicates 13 months of coverage.
  • In Banner & in eVA, if 10201021 is entered, it indicates 13 months of coverage.
