Invoicing Guidelines

  • Vendor name and remittance address is to be clearly stated on the invoice.
  • Invoice numbers must be clearly displayed on each separate invoice.
  • Each invoice must include a current and valid purchase order number. 
  • Invoices without a purchase order number will be returned, causing a delay in invoice payment.
  • Invoices should clearly indicate the name of the city of Scottsdale contact/order person.
  • The city does not accept statements.  Vendors must submit individual invoices for payment.
  • The city is NOT exempt from payment of Arizona or Municipal sales and use tax.


  • Invoices are normally paid 25 days from the date of invoice or per terms established in the contract with the City.
  • All discrepancies between the purchase order and the invoice must be resolved before payment will be made.
  • Unless otherwise instructed by a city staff member, send all original invoices directly to:

City of Scottsdale
