APPENDIX A
Purchasing Authority
The Board Treasurer, in conjunction with the Head of School, shall be responsible for the installation and supervision of proper internal control systems for purchasing, including but not limited to, a purchase order system, proper verification of purchases, payment documentation and bidding procedures. LEGAL REFS.: C.R.S. 22-32-109 (1) (b) C.R.S. 24-17-201
Approval Policy for Accounts Payable Invoice/Vouchers
The Head of School will be responsible for the review and approval of purchase orders originating from within their scope of budgetary authority. A purchase order (a PO) request will be completed by the individual requesting a purchase for a School or a department. The individual will submit the PO to the Head of School for approval.
After the Head of School’s approval, the PO will be forwarded to the Bookkeeping Office for processing, and a copy will reside in an industry leading accounting software. Any purchase order exceeding $10,000 will need approval from the Board of Directors. There will be an exception for curriculum purchases and items specifically or previously approved by the Board in the annual budget.
Availability of funds is checked at the time of approval. All purchases must be charged to the correct budgetary account. The approved copy forwarded to the Head of School will list the budget line item(s) related to the PO for tracking purposes.
The vendor will ship the merchandise to the School or department, referencing the PO number. The School or department requesting the purchase of goods and/or services shall maintain records as to the status of all such requests and shall be responsible for checking the items actually received against the PO and packing slip. After the School or department checks the merchandise and signs for the receipt of the merchandise, the documentation will be forwarded to the Bookkeeping Office via QuickBooks or email.
When the receipt is recorded and the PO and invoice are reconciled, the Bookkeeping Office will process payment. The Bookkeeping Office will process payment only after receiving the necessary paperwork from the School or department making the purchase.
If the School or department receives an item that is not wanted after it is ordered, it is the PO originator’s responsibility to re-package the product, affix address labels, return the merchandise to the vendor and advise the Bookkeeping Office or Head of School of any changes.
The purchasing power of the School shall not be used to obtain goods or services for the private use of any employee.
Any employee who charges any item without an authorized PO will be held personally liable for that purchase.
Requests for receiving items in order to preview them should still cause a PO to be activated. If the items are kept, a written notification to the Bookkeeping Office requesting payment must be made.
Purchasing items via credit or debit card should follow the normal PO process.










APPENDIX B
Purchasing Authority
GWMS shall be its own purchasing authority
