Monthly Demands (Vendor Payments)
The District’s process for issuing payment for goods and services relies upon strict adherence to the annual budget approved by the Board of Directors and a system of purchase order (encumbrance) accounting. All payment requests originate with a purchase order approved by authorized personnel. Invoices are subsequently processed within a 30-day time period, and must have procedural and signature authorization congruent with the purchase order.
Checks are issued every two weeks. Individual checks are signed by the Finance Director if less than $25,000, or signed by both the General Manager and Finance Director if greater than $25,000. Payments are then forwarded to vendors.
The Board of Directors is provided with a demand list at its regular public meeting every month that contains the complete record of payments made during the prior month.
