A purchase order must be issued prior to any purchase. Upon delivery of the goods or service, the vendor should submit an invoice. This invoice will be reviewed for accuracy, and then submitted along with an originally signed purchase order to the finance office for payment processing.
Payment requests are then placed on a meeting Agenda of the Mayor and Township Committee for approval. Meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of each month with exception of the months July and August. The purchase order must be received by the Finance Department at least 10 days prior to the either meeting to ensure payment.
