Things to Consider/Common Q’s
- Using contracted vendors is required when UWEC will receive the invoice/pay the bill directly. However, you may opt to do a self move and receive a stipend to cover expenses instead.
- If the new employee obtains a stipend, using a contracted vendor is not required and the payment process is the responsibility of the employee.
- The stipend needs to be manually requested through the e-reimbursement module. Firstsource can help with this at (715) 836-3131.
- If you go through our contracted vendor, we are able to directly pay them up to the amount allowed in your offer letter. The vendor may contact the Assistant Controller to set this up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
