    Accounts Payable

    The Columbia Public School District has a centralized accounts payable system, which processes payment of invoices for all District locations.

    • Employees: Checks are issued to vendors on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week. Approved invoices must be received in Accounts Payable by noon on Monday (to be included in the Tuesday check run), or by noon on Wednesday (to be included in the Thursday check run). However, payments will be made as due, rather than immediately upon receipt. Checks are mailed the next business day following the day of issuance.
    • Vendors: To ensure timely payments, mail original invoices referencing the purchase order number on the invoice to:
