Accounts Payable

4 days ago

Accounts Payable / Purchasing

The main focus of the Purchasing Office is to facilitate the acquisition of goods and services in order to meet the needs of schools and departments of the Empire Union School District. The Accounts Payable department is responsible for the disbursement of funds for goods and services received throughout the district. The function of this office is to organize and administer procurement/purchasing for the district in accordance with the responsibility and authority delegated by the Superintendent of Schools and the Board of Trustees and to use pertinent documents (i.e., invoices, packing lists, credit memos) to reconcile payment prior to disbursing the funds. The Accounts Payable department is dependent upon campuses and departments releasing (signing the pink copy and remitting to Accounts Payable) the PO's in order to remit payment.


 Acquisition of the requested goods and services shall be made only by the issuance of an official numbered District purchase order, approved by the Assistant Superintendent of Business Services. Any commitment to acquire goods or services on behalf of the Empire Union School District prior to securing a bona fide purchase order or without prior approval from the Business Office or designee is prohibited. The only official authorized to obligate or commit the district involving the acquisition of goods or services is the Assistant Superintendent of Business Services or other authorized agent of the District.

Affordable Care Act

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act passed by Congress, signed into law on March 23, 2010 by President Barack Obama, mandates that all Americans, with a few exceptions, be insured for specific essential health care benefits, and that the insurance coverage be deemed to be affordable based on the Federal Poverty Level.


The Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as the ACA, is being phased in over a period of years, with the most significant changes to the current health care delivery system which took effect January 1, 2014, or on the first day of the employer's new plan year after January 1, 2014.  Covered California is California's Exchange, which is a public insurance marketplace that guarantees access to private insurance policies with premium and cost-sharing subsidies for lower-income individuals who don't have access to affordable employer coverage.
