All claims for payment from school department funds will be processed in accordance with regulations developed by the City Auditor and the Superintendent of Schools. Payment will be authorized against invoices properly supported by approved purchase orders, with properly submitted vouchers, or in accordance with salaries and salary schedules approved by the School Committee.
The certified vouchers and approved warrants, with supporting documents, are forwarded to the City Auditor for processing and subsequent payment by the City Treasurer. Invoices, statements, vouchers and warrants will be available for inspection by the School Committee.
The Superintendent or his designee will be responsible for assuring that budget appropriations are observed and that total expenditures do not exceed the amount appropriated in the budget for all items.
