A disbursement is payment to a vendor for goods or services provided to the district. Disbursement types include physical checks, ACH transactions, and other electronic postings based on the “default payment type” from the vendor.  All disbursements regardless of type are numbered automatically with a disbursement number (Reference Number). When a disbursement is posted, the purchase order is no longer “filled” and has an updated status of “paid”.

Users have the ability to create Disbursements through the Payables interface.
