MEMORANDUM NO. 2004-26

July 1, 2004

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

Attention: Chief Administrative Officers, Fiscal Officers, and Business Manager
Subject: Non-Purchase Order Vouchers

The Comptroller's Accounts Payable Division permits agencies to issue certain payments in Core-CT without the issuance of a purchase order. The following payment types generally do not require purchase orders:

  • Postage
  • Petty cash replenishments
  • Refunds
  • Pending receipts
  • Grant transfers
  • Town payments
  • Board member payments
  • Client entitlements

Although agencies were advised of this process during the Core-CT voucher training, many agencies continue to issue purchase orders for this category of payment. In addition to the above listed payment types, Comptroller approval may be granted for other payments where there is not an exchange of goods or services, or where it is not a feasible business practice to issue purchase orders. Agencies requesting non-purchase order approvals must make a written request to Mark Aronowitz, Director, Accounts Payable Division, at mark.aronowitz@po.state.ct.us.
