The Accounts Payable Office ensures that all vendors are paid for services provided in a prompt manner and that all payments are properly approved and supported.
Our mission is to:
- Ensure that all vendors are paid in a prompt manner; and
- Ensure that all payments are properly approved and supported.
Each month, we process more than $1 million in payments to our vendors for the goods and services they provide. To ensure proper internal controls, we require that someone from the district verify receipt of the goods and services before payment is issued. This sometimes can cause a delay in the payment of our invoices, but we generally pay all our invoices within 30 days of receiving the goods. If you have experienced a delay longer than 30 days, please contact our Accounts Payable staff at (360) 412-4433 or (360) 412-4434.
