- Employee travel vouchers
- Personal service contract payments
- Unemployment and workers' compensation
- Insurance claims
- Attorneys' payments
- Cash receipts
- Utilities and Fleet One invoices.
Supervisors and staff process electronic payment vouchers and inter-accounts in eMARS submitted by other agencies which includes FLEET billing, the Commonwealth's Office of Technology (COT) for technical support and training, the Department of Insurance for insurance coverage, and KY Stat Police-Facilities Security services. The Procurement Card Administrator for central office support staff is also an integral part of the accounting section and monitors procurement cared purchases for accuracy and compliance with Finance Statewide Accounting Services policies and procedures. This section also has the authority to post audit those institutions that have been granted final approval of the documents for accuracy and efficiency. It also does the actual purchasing for central office and coordinates the raining for all Corrections' personnel in new purchasing techniques (eMARS, Pro-Card).
The staff of the Purchasing Section serves as the central purchasing agent for the Department. The staff prepares and coordinates requisitions initiated by the Department and assists institutional Fiscal Officers/Managers with purchasing issues. This section is responsible for all Personal Service Contracts and Memoranda of Agreement.
