The Accounts Payable staff produces vendor payments for City purchases. Payments include traditional check payments and automated clearing house (ACH) payments.  The staff monitors invoices and payment terms, schedules payments and prepares cash requirements reports to investment officers for cash management purposes.

Extensive use of a citywide Purchasing Card program has dramatically reduced the number of transactions and payments made through the accounts payable process.
