Physical Facilities New Invoicing
Physical Facilities has implemented a new invoicing system.  Work orders requiring invoicing to departments will now be invoiced via email. The invoices will be sent to the email address customers include when submitting service requests on Maximo.  Customers can view invoices online or open them as a PDF from the email.

Electronic invoices will only be used when customers indicate payment using other than State funds.  All work orders that indicate a State account to chargeback will continue to have payment made via expenditure transfers.

Please contact Paige Benware @ 777-3927 or pbenware@binghamton.edu with any questions.
