What We Do
The Business Office is responsible for all financial management, maintenance of liability insurance, compliance with State reporting requirements, payroll, accounting tasks (including preparation for the annual independent audit), and purchasing. Additionally, the Department prepares the annual budget for review by the Board of Education, and presents monthly financial reports at the Board's public meetings.
The range of purchasing supervised by the Business office includes textbooks, furniture, office supplies, school buses, buildings and grounds equipment and electronic equipment for classrooms and offices. Competitive bidding procedures are followed for any commodity purchases in excess of $20,000. Requests for bids are published in the Scarsdale Inquirer and the Journal News. Additionally, the District maintains a bid list for mail distribution of requests for bids; interested parties may apply to be included in these mailings.
