Accounts Payable

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Accounts Payable type (generate) the checks to pay the District bills?

No. All checks are generated at the Kern County Superintendent of Schools (KCSOS) office. Accounts Payable sends the required documentation to their office requesting that checks be generated.

How often are invoices (bills) paid?

Invoices are processed for payment daily.

Are checks generated daily?

Checks are generated as often as Accounts Payable sends the required documentation to KCSOS; however, KCSOS has set aside a six working day period at the end of each month, where no requests for checks will be accepted. The process of obtaining checks resumes at the beginning of each month.

Once an invoice is processed for payment, how long does it take to receive the check and get it in the mail?

Normally, from two to five working days.
