Outgoing Wire Transfer

There is now a Wire Transfer Request Upload on the BAO forms site that you can use to make your outgoing wire request upload your supporting documentation.  Due to the increased number of outgoing wire transfers, PLEASE ALLOW a MINIMUM of 3 days for processing. If the wire is absolutley a RUSH then please notify apbao@uoregon.edu that you have a RUSH wire transfer, otherwise Accounts Payable will work to get the wire transfer processed as quickly as it can.  If you are unable to use the Wire Transfer Upload Form, please fax your Wire Transfers Requests to Accounts Payable to 541-346-2393 with ALL supporting payment documentation, including the banking information that was provided to you securely by the vendor
