Purpose of Check Signing Procedure:

To create a check signature control to protect the integrity of all cash disbursements. Check signing is a very important exercise and the signatory will be held accountable. It will be the responsibility of the signing parties to verify the accuracy of each check.

Review the Accounts Payable Policy and apply each point as relates to each check. Verify that all back-up is attached to the check and that the amounts on the back-up are the same as the amounts on the check.
