Submitting a Bill
To be paid for goods and services rendered to the County of Ocean, a vendor (claimant) must:
1. SIGN the Purchase Order which was sent to the vendor.
2. Return it to the department on the Purchase Order following the words - "BILL TO:"
Note: If the vendor must know to what account the payment is to be applied, an invoice with the appropriate information should accompany the Central Purchase Order "Voucher."
SCHEDULE FOR SUBMITTING BILLS FOR PAYMENT
County purchase orders will be paid only by authorization of the Board of Chosen Freeholders. It is important to allow adequate time for the department staff to process the payment to meet the Board deadline of the Tuesday prior to the Freeholder Board meeting.
SCHEDULE FOR PAYMENT BY COUNTY
Payment, made by check, will occur the Monday following the Board Meeting. The day the checks are issued may be subject to change due to intervening holidays or other unforeseen circumstances.
