PeoplePay is the transaction process used for paying for services from individuals rather than businesses, and can also be used to pay individuals for honoraria and royalties; and to pay or record prizes, gifts and awards. PeoplePay makes it simple to ensure that the payment meets university requirements and IRS rules governing the taxation of payments to individuals.
PeoplePay transactions for payment of services to individuals are subject to all university procurement policies, including the competitive bid process, even though some transactions are processed by the university’s payroll department and some through Shared Services Center PeoplePay Processing.
The PeoplePay Decision Tool guides staff in determining how to pay a person for non-appointment-related items or services. The PeoplePay decision tool asks simple questions to quickly determine the correct process or form to use when making these types of payments.
