It also details the authorization limits for primary banks (including wires, ACHs, and checks) and secondary banks.
In this example, payment packages to be paid via wire transfer are assembled and audited by the accounts payable department prior to any payment being made. When auditing, the reviewer will confirm that there is a three-way match for product purchases and a two-way match for purchases of services. All wire transactions must be approved by two approvers.
