Ms. Bartlett: Accounts Payable, Cash

Mr. Brown: Payroll, Accounts Receivable


Assignments for preparing drafts of Audit Procedure Manuals

  • The Accounts Payable manual is complete

  • A draft for the General Fund procedure is near completion, and will be finished first.
  • Drafts for the Reserve Funds and Grand List procedures will follow.
