External billings are necessary when a University department has provided goods or services to an external party and now needs to bill for those goods or services. Ohio University departments are not permitted to send out their own invoices. An External Billing Authorization form (Excel) needs completed and submitted to the Office of the Bursar. An invoice will be produced and sent to the external party for payment. The Office of the Bursar also handles the collection activity and follows up on past-due accounts. If an account becomes greater than 120 days past due, the account will be sent to the State of Ohio Attorney General for collection.
