Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Information

Previously announced, Accounts Payable is preparing for the adoption of an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that will allow to more accurately and efficiently capture invoice details. In order to leverage this software and be better equipped to process invoices timely, they ask the following:

  • All invoices should be sent directly by suppliers to in their original electronic (PDF) format.
  • If they are unable to receive the original electronic document, Accounts Payable must have a "clean" copy that has been scanned at a resolution of 300 dpi and must be free of handwritten information.  They ask that OSU departments also communicate to suppliers that invoices be sent directly to
  • In the event we have a supplier who is unable to email documents, invoices should be mailed directly to Accounts Payable at 2650 Kenny Road, Columbus, OH 43210, where they will be able to scan the document at the required resolution.

Please note that invoices for the OSU Wexner Medical Center should continue to be sent directly to or their office at 660 Ackerman Road, Columbus, OH 43202, with the same considerations for invoice resolution and handwritten information.
