Authorizing Purchases

Red Deer Polytechnic does not accept responsibility for goods or services delivered without an authorized purchase request. Acceptance of a Purchase Order from the Polytechnic constitutes acceptance of all the terms and conditions associated with the order. 

Payment of Invoices

Red Deer Polytechnic now offers vendors the option of emailing invoices directly to Accounts Payable. Invoices must be attached to the mail in PDF format. All invoices must be clearly legible.

Payments are issued on a cheque or direct deposited into vendor’s bank account on terms net 30, or paid by a virtual credit card upon receipt of an approved invoice in Finance at Red Deer Polytechnic.

When funds are deposited, the Polytechnic sends an electronic copy of the direct deposit notice to the vendor’s designated email address. 

If you wish to enrol your company into our direct deposit system, please fill out the Vendor Direct Deposit form and email the form to Accounts Payable.

When invoice is paid by a virtual credit card, the vendor receives an email from the card issuer with the details of the payment (invoice numbers, amounts etc.) and instructions to accept the payment. To enrol your company into this payment program and take advantage of the accelerated payment, email Accounts Payable with the subject line "Virtual Credit Card Payment" and provide in the body of the email:

  • Company name
  • Accounts Receivable remittance (mailing) address
  • City, province and postal code
  • Contact name and title
