About Us

The Accounts Payable Section is responsible for processing all non-payroll disbursements to vendors and individuals.

Accounts Payable uses an Oracle-based business software application to process payments to vendors for goods and services purchased by departments within the College and to efficiently manage disbursements while keeping strong controls over the approval and payments processes.


Accounts Payable assists campus faculty, staff and students in meeting their teaching and operational needs by disbursing payments to vendors and individuals to whom the campus makes financial commitments. Disbursement services are accomplished in a timely manner, recognizing the importance of positive relationships with individuals and vendors.
We envision this task to be accomplished in an atmosphere of cooperation and friendliness by always maintaining a professional and dignified image.
      This  is accomplished by:

  • Clear concise and timely dissemination of accounts payable policies and procedures
  • A control to ensure proper approval of all expenditures
  • Prompt and accurate processing of invoices and check requests
  • Timely payment of invoices and check requests “according to IC policy”
  • Professional and helpful interactions with the College community on all accounts payable matters
  • Resolution of all vendor problems
