Audit of Claims & Vouchers

Auditor's Certification

It is the duty of the County Auditor after auditing each claim or voucher to certify to the correctness of the claim or voucher in the space provided thereon before such claim or voucher is submitted to the board of county commissioners for its consideration or, in case of other claims or vouchers, before such claims or vouchers are paid. ( IC 5-11-10-2)

Approval of Claims

Each claim or voucher must be approved by the officer or department head receiving the merchandise or services in the space provided on the claim or voucher.

Payment of Claims

All claims properly completed and submitted to the County Auditor's Office will be processed and submitted to the County Commissioners for approval monthly.

If you have a question regarding the status of a claim you should:

  1. Call the office receiving the merchandise or services as they must verify that they have filed the claim with the Auditor's Office for payment.
  2. Call Terri Woodward, Claims Bookkeeper, for further information at 812/435-5298.



Vendor Self Service (VSS)


Vanderburgh County business vendors need to use this link to register to use the MUNIS Vendor Self Service feature. For existing business vendors, use your current vendor number to register for VSS. If you do not know your vendor number, use the County Vendor List link to search for your number.

Accounts Payable

It shall be the duty of every county auditor to publish all court claims or vouchers filed for consideration of the Board of County Commissioners at least three days prior to the meeting date when the claims or vouchers are to be considered and acted upon by the board. (IC 36-2-6-3)

According to federal tax law, we are required to obtain Taxpayer Identifications Numbers (TIN) of all individuals and businesses to whom reportable payments are made. If you do not provide us with this information, you may be fined $50.00 by the IRS under Section 6723 of the Internal Revenue Code and future payments to you may be subject to 31% backup withholding under IRS Code Section 3406.

You must mail the vendor form back to the Auditor's Office with an original signature before paperwork can be processed.
