Invoices & Payment
All City Departments make purchases for their own department. All invoices to the City of Valdez must have a Purchase Order or Contract number on the invoice. Please contact the individual placing the order to obtain the Purchase Order number to avoid delaying your payment.
Our payment policy has several approval steps. All approved invoices will be paid bi-weekly by noon on every other Friday. In order for Accounts Payable to process checks on time, the approved paperwork must be turned into Accounts Payable no later than noon on Friday prior to the week of the check run. Vendors can also submit invoices electronically. Email Accounts Payable
