Expenditures will be made on district voucher forms. Before vouchers are submitted to the board for payment, they will be audited and certified by the district's appointed auditing officer for accuracy and proof that the goods or services have been received and are satisfactory and that previous payment has not been made. The certification must be signed and dated by the auditing officer or designee. Vouchers will be approved by a recorded affirmative vote of a majority of the board.
The board authorizes advance payment of a voucher when a delay in payment would otherwise result in a penalty or late fee, or an interest charge on the unpaid balance. The board will review and approve all such advance payments at its next regularly scheduled public meeting. In the event the claim is disapproved, the auditing officer and superintendent will cause the claims to be recognized as receivables and pursue collection diligently until the funds are collected or until the board approves the payment of those claims.
