Vendor Payment Information

Accounts Payable


The Accounts Payable Office is responsible for ensuring the accurate disbursement of funds and the timely processing of all payments. Arapahoe County Government’s standard business practice is to pay all vendors 30 days from invoice date. Check runs are completed every Monday and are sent standard mail via the United States Postal Service.

In order for a payment to be processed, a vendor will be required to complete the IRS W-9 Form.

These are sent out via the United States Postal Service no later than January 31. If you were paid less than $600.00 during the fiscal year, you will not receive an IRS Form 1099 from the County.
