Effective policies and procedures in the accounts payable function are critical for any organization wishing to eliminate duplicate payments, prevent and detect fraud, improve cost effectiveness, and maintain regulatory compliance. The first step in that battle is having a current, detailed policy and procedures manual.

Industry expert Mary Schaeffer shows auditors, controllers, and managers how to create such a manual when none exists. She also includes an outline for a sample policy and a checklist that can be used to assess current policies and procedures.
