Wire Payment Requests 

A wire payment may be requested for either a payment which must be paid immediately, or a payment to a foreign bank. Because WFS accommodates electronic payments, miscellaneous wire requests to US banks will be minimal. However, it is understood that emergency situations do arise.

DOMESTIC WIRE

To request an electronic transfer to a bank within the United States, complete the attached Domestic Wire form and attach it to the Smart Doc Voucher. 

The Smart Doc Voucher must include the following details:

Type "PAY BY WIRE" in the Instructions to AP section (Based on the AP instructions, AP will know to add Christine as an Approver. The WFS voucher approval notification will alert Christine to initiate the payment.)

Domestic Wire Request Form 

FOREIGN WIRE

To request an electronic transfer to a bank outside the United States, complete the attached form and email the scanned image to Christine Rodrigue in Finance.  The email should include a carbon copy to the individuals that are expected to be on the workflow of the Smart Doc Voucher. A confirmation of the payment will be emailed to the requestor after the payment is processed.  If the payment to the vendor is in foreign currency, the requestor will be provided with the conversion amount in USD. 

The Smart Doc Voucher must include the following details:

  • Type "PAID BY WIRE" in the Instructions to AP section.
  • Attach the payment confirmation. 

Foreign Wire Request Form

A payment request will be processed within 5 business days of receipt. After the payment is made, the requestor will receive an email confirmation of the payment. For non USD requests, the confirmation will indicate the corresponding USD equivalent on the date of the payment.
