Using a customized computer tracking system, the Department monitors all expected payments from franchisers, other governments, vendors, etc. As payments are received, the system posts them to the appropriate revenue account, and shows the receipt in the module.
Most expenditures are processed by purchase orders, petty cash receipts and third party administered funds (i.e. Worker's Comp. And Health Insurance). Payment processing and account posting is entirely computerized. All bank and trust statements are reconciled by the Department.
