This Accounts Payable dataset contains information on payments made to vendors and individuals for services and supplies in the course of business at the City of Boulder. Also reported are payments made to grant recipients, refunds for cancelled classes, and payments made to vendors via purchase cards (pcards).
Invoices from the vendor are sent directly to the departments for review and are entered into the accounts payable system for payment. These invoices are approved by Finance before payment is processed to the vendor. Please see the Data Dictionary file below for important definitions and examples of processes.
A small number of payment categories have been automatically removed from the dataset due to confidentiality concerns (e.g. payments to legal vendors, reimbursements to employees, select payments related to confidential employee wellness and certain public safety activities).
This dataset is updated weekly every Saturday.
