MEMORANDUM NO. 96-06
February 1, 1996
TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES
|Attention:||Fiscal Officers, Business Managers,
Accounts Payable Supervisors
|Subject:||Disputed Claims and "Document Date" on Invoice -
A review of invoices being processed by agencies indicates a need to clarify how the Document Date, Block Number 6, on the CO-17 Invoice - Voucher Form should be completed for disputed claims.
If a claim is disputed and payment is delayed, then the correct date to use in Document Date, Block Number 6, is the later of:
Document Date is the date the agency receives a properly completed invoice from the vendor through any state location. It is not the date the invoice was prepared for payment by the Agency's Accounts Payable.
Proper completion is important because these dates are used to determine payment due dates and to calculate vendor accounts payable for inclusion in year-end GAAP reporting.
Questions should be addressed to the Accounts Payable Division, 566-8978.
