Expenditure refers to the payment of a sum of money by an organization, arising from a valid commitment or obligation. Payments may arise from procurement activities, such as the purchase of goods and services. Payments may also arise from non-procurement activities, such as payment of salaries. The proper authorizing and recording of expenditures is a key component of financial controls.
