Virtual Roundtable: Payment Solutions in Higher Education— 

The "Square Peg in a Round Hole" Approach

Facilitated by the NAPCP Higher Education Advisory Team

Open to end-users in all sectors and providers

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Description

 


Between student travel for study abroad, NCAA athletic per diems and research payments to subjects, higher education faces a litany of complex payment challenges that strive to meet federal agency, association and even sponsor guidelines. This virtual roundtable will present a variety of approaches and solutions to these payment challenges from three end-users with university experience who have found a way to comply with their fiduciary responsibilities while at the same time facilitate their customers' needs.

This discussion will address:

  • types of payment issues encountered in higher education
  • difficulties associated with these payment types
  • potential solutions for meeting payment needs
  • benefits of these solutions
  • lingering issues following implementation

Key takeaways:

  • Your requirements will ultimately point you to potential solutions and the examples presented illustrate how this can happen.
  • Stakeholder buy-in and participation is key to success.
  • Even when the project is implemented, a 360-degree review with feedback is necessary to ensure the payment system is meeting everyone’s needs, as well as to identify areas where improvements can be made.

PLEASE NOTEThe registration form will ask if you wish to be a panelist or in listen-only mode. You should choose "panelist" if you wish to participate during the discussion. The event will allow up to 24 panelists.

Target Audience

Procurement and payment professionals who understand the complexity of small dollar cash payment needs such as NCAA per diems, as well as research payments to subjects where accountability and anonymity are essential to program success.
