Voucher Certification and Approval - Procedures - 7322-P
All claims against a school district must be preaudited by the auditing officer of the municipality or their delegate. In addition, all claims must be certified by the auditing officer. This certification may be made on each individual claim voucher or, subject to the acceptance and approval of the Board, a blanket voucher certification may be used so long as it indicates the particular vouchers so certified. The use of a blanket certification in no way relieves the auditing officer of their responsibility and liability for each individual voucher so certified. The certification must be signed and dated by the auditing officer or their delegate. For all claims, except expense reimbursement claims certified by officers or employees (see employee travel procedures), the certification must include the following language:
I, THE UNDERSIGNED DO HEREBY CERTIFY UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE MATERIALS HAVE BEEN FURNISHED, THE SERVICE RENDERED OR THE LABOR PERFORMED AS DESCRIBED HEREIN, AND THAT THE EXPENSE REIMBURSEMENT CLAIMS ARE A JUST, DUE AND UNPAID OBLIGATION AGAINST THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AND THAT I AM AUTHORIZED TO AUTHENTICATE AND CERTIFY SAID CLAIM.
