Payment of Invoices

All invoices paid by Marion County fall into one of the following categories:
1) Expenditures not requiring a purchase order prior to purchase
2) Expenditures requiring a purchase order

No matter what the category, no demand for money against the county shall be approved, allowed, audited, or paid unless it shall be in writing, dated, and sufficiently itemized and documented to identify the expenditure.

A smooth flow of purchase orders and invoices must be accomplished for the system to work quickly and efficiently. Elected officials and department heads can assist by giving purchasing as much time as possible to complete an order.

The Marion County purchasing department shall endeavor to work with the Marion County Commission, all county agencies, all elected officials and all department heads to ensure that Marion County is operating smoothly and efficiently.
