VIP numbers are used to facilitate communication of charging instructions in our eProcurement solution, SciQuest and our online shipping solution, eShipGlobal. VIP numbers are also used to set up a default charging instruction when preparing EMS expense reports.
A VIP number is a 10 character “alias” that is linked to a specific 27-33 digit University charging instruction (PTAO - Project, Task, Award, Organization). The first 3 characters are always VIP, followed by 7 numbers. VIP numbers are linked to a generic VIP expenditure type, 822000.
Business Offices typically have one or more persons assigned to create and maintain VIP numbers for their department.
