Accounts Payable

All invoices or other documentation for payment process MUST be received by the Finance Office by noon of the Wednesday preceding the regular Board meeting dates, which are the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. If they are received past this deadline, then payment will not occur until the next regular meeting of the Board. In some instances, there can be three weeks between meetings.

This time deadline is very important in order to provide timely payment to vendors along with timely allowance for this office to process and present for Board payment approval.
