Qualified Purchases: The County will not participate in the decisions regarding the Districts' needs, but will rely on the Districts' certifications and the Program Manager's verification of compliance with the capital asset requirement. PMg understands that the State Auditor's Office has determined that the purchasing requirements of the individual districts as regulated by the State of Oklahoma must be satisfied, which will satisfy the requirements of Tulsa County sales tax with respect to the expenditure of these public funds.

Purchases and Payment of Funds: The County will reimburse each District for qualified purchases with reimbursements processed monthly. For bond purposes, all purchases must be completed no later than October 1, 2006, with reimbursements completed no later than November 1, 2006. A workshop is being developed to help in this special payment process procedure.
